Press Release: Netherlands government gives the ax to demography. NIDIís survival in jeopardy30-05-2013The recent budget cuts announced by the Dutch government are a threatening blow to scientific research on population issues and demographic teaching in the Netherlands. These cuts may mean that the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI) will cease to exist. There is no discussion of funding reductions, but rather the total elimination of the core funding of the NIDI (Ä1.9 million). By abandoning the unique and proven expertise of NIDI at a time when the Netherlands is in the midst of major demographic changes, the government is acting against its own interests. Consider, for example, the immense social importance of population ageing, international migration and population decline. NIDI produces cutting edge research and is an international leader in the field of demography. As a national institute, NIDI is pivotal in the academic teaching in demography.
