First meeting of the new Council 2018-2021


The first meeting of the new IUSSP Council took place at INED, in Paris, on 20-21 March 2018. The Council had a tightly packed agenda: beyond handling ongoing business and assessing the success of the Cape Town International Population Conference, it  mainly focused on how to restructure IUSSP activities to better serve the needs of members and to better address emerging issues of scientific and policy importance and evolving donor priorities. A report on the meeting will be shared with members next month.


Among the decisions that were made, we can already announce:
  • Free Student Associate membership now for ALL students (up to 4 years total). Until now, only students from low- and middle-income countries could register for free.
  • Fifty percent discounts now for ALL retired members The 50% discount was only for members from high-income countries.
  • Higher discounts for LOYAL members at the next IPC in Hyderabad rewarding those who have maintained their membership since the previous IPC of 2017.   

The Council also discussed various ways to better serve the members over the next four years and beyond and will be reaching out to members in the coming months.
