Why Population Age Structure Matters

Human Security Students:

The New Security Beat blog ran this insightful piece on how demographic pressures seem to be exacerbating political unrest in Guinea.

The blog post also links to some good backgrounders published by Population Action International on how population age structures provide important insights into the human security challenges countries face.  Those new to the study of human security should review these fact sheets in order to better understand the demographic analyses that form such an important part of the human security literature.
