Dr Stuart Basten

Non-stipendiary Lecturer in Demography



I am currently involved in a number of research projects including a large scale project on fertility ideals and intentions in China and Taiwan; a project aimed at designing a comprehensive population policy for Hong Kong SAR; a study of family formation under precarious circumstances in India, China and Europe and the development of a new Health and Demographic Surveillance system in Iraq.

Research Interests

My research interests focus on the interaction between population dynamics and social policy in a variety of low- and middle-income countries.
