Population and Development Program

The Population and Development Program (PopDev) was established in 1986 as a center for critical thinking, learning, and advocacy on population and the environment.

PopDev challenges traditional views of over-population and immigration as primary causes of environmental degradation, political instability, and poverty, and promotes social, reproductive and environmental justice.

Its publications include the DifferenTakes issue paper series and Population in Perspective social justice curriculum.

PopDev offers courses and workshops, including a political writing workshop for student journalists, and hosts international scholars and activists to speak on critical global issues.

Hampshire alum Anne Hendrixson 91F is the PopDev Director.
