The dramatically ageing population of the EU has serious implications across a wide range of policy areas, including the economy, healthcare and pensions. Free movement within the EU and migration from third countries also play an important role in shaping demography in individual Member States and regions.
The special in-focus section of this latest edition of the study deals with the relationship between food, nutrition and demographic change annual. Themes analysed include the connection between food quality and life expectancy, the nutrition needs and habits of different age groups, and food insecurity as a trigger for migration towards the EU. Possible solutions such as labelling for healthier food, climate labelling and insect food products are also addressed. The presentation of the study will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives of the FAO, European Commission and Joint Research Centre, as well as the European Parliament.

Seemingly without the need to resort to international institutions or seek other nations' formal agreement, the EU has been acquiring and exercing a unique ability to adopt regulations that increasingly shape the global economic environment, raising standards worldwide and leading to a 'Europeanisation' of many important aspects of global commerce. Either because foreign jurisdictions choose voluntarily to adopt EU standards or because market forces alone are sufficient to convert EU standards into the global ones, especially as multinational companies voluntarily extend the EU rule to govern their global operations, the Union is finding that it is able to exercise a new and significant form of soft power. At this EPRS Book Talk, Professor BRADFORD will explore some of the issues set out in her new book with Dr Andrea RENDA, a leading authority on EU regulation based at CEPS in Brussels.
