The population slide of Europe

Text size Aa Aa

Europe’s population is on a rapid decline. Health and pension systems are barely coping.

How bleak is the future?

This week Insiders travels to Hungary and Greece to investigate.

Hungary has introduced a pro-birth policy. In short, they are paying people to have babies. Producer and journalist Hans Von der Brelie takes us there.

Greece faces a catch-22 situation: women don’t have enough children, the population is ageing and pensions have been cut. Has this ancient country reached the point of no return? Euronews’ Panos Kitsikopoulos finds out.

Finally, to further investigate Europe’s demographic time bomb, we interview Monika Queisser of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris.
