Description

This volume contains the Papers presented at the Second Colloquium on Population and Ethics-with special reference to Islam, organized by the International Population Concerns (IPC) Network at Cairo in 2003. The first section of the book provides the basic data for understanding the ethical issues related to population, poverty and conflict in the context of the millennium Development Goals. It is mentioned that the world population is expected to stabilize at about 8.9 billions around 2050. Data on international migration and debt burden and also presented.

The papers in the second section deal with the ethical road map for formulating population policies while the third section tries to sketch the paths for Christian-Muslim dialogue in the development debate.
