“This volume will prove to be rewarding reading for all graduate students and scholars in social policy, demography, ethics and political theory who are interested in population issues.”  (Social Policy & Administration, 1 February 2013)

“As a result the book is both accessible to the uninitiated and valuable to the initiated.  Overall, it represents an excellent resource for political philosophers, population theorists and policy makers.”  (Political Studies Review, 10 March 2012)

 

 

 

"For two decades work on reproductive rights displaced population ethics. Here at last are rigorous new discussions of just approaches to population change, intergenerational justice and just migration: key topics for a globalising world of shifting populations and climates."
Onora O’Neill, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Cambridge
