Thursday 15 October 2020 Ilya Kashnitsky successfully defended his thesis entitled ‘Changing regional inequalities in ageing across Europe‘.
This thesis explores the role of demographic change in the evolution of inequalities in population age structures across regions of Europe. It strives to increase our understanding of the demographic processes that shape regional population age structures, and how these processes are interrelated with regional economic development. The analysis is focused on changing relative differences over time, i.e. convergence or divergence.
Ilya did his PhD project at NIDI and the University of Groningen and is curerntly postdoc at the Interdisciplinary Centre on Population Dynamics, University of Southern Denmark.
