Abstract

Le autrici evidenziano come la conoscenza delle tematiche di genere sia fondamentale per la comprensione dei processi demografici, sia nei paesi in via di sviluppo sia in quelli altamente industrializzati, e come debba divenire consuetudine nella formazione demografica. Vengono sviluppati alcuni vincoli ideologici, metodologici ed istituzionali e le ragioni per le quali tali vincoli devono essere superati per far sì che la demografia resti una "meta-disciplina", indispensabile in questo nuovo millennio. We argue that knowledge of gender issues is essential to understanding demographic processes, both in developing and highly industrialized countries, and thus should be mainstreamed in demographic training. Some of the ideological, methodological, and institutional constraints in doing so are elaborated, along with reasons as to why these constraints need to be overcome if demography is to remain a vital "meta-discipline" in this new millennium. Les auteurs démontrent le caractère fondamental de la connaissance des thèmes liés au genre dans la compréhension des processus démographiques des pays en voie de développement tout comme des pays très industrialisés et, dès lors, la nécessité de les intégrer pleinement dans la formation des démographes. L'article étudie quelques connotations idéologiques, méthodologiques et institutionnelles, et les raisons exigeant de les éliminer pour garder à la démographie son caractère "métadisciplinaire" indispensable en ce nouveau millénaire.
