Geoffrey McNicoll is a senior associate and co-editor of the Council’s Population and Development Review (PDR).
I joined the Council in 1974, and Population and Development Review’s first issue was published in September 1975. PDR is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal that seeks to bring the best social science expertise to bear on explaining the relationships between population and social, economic, and environmental change. It draws on history and social theory to generate new insights on population policy. I’ve been associated with PDR since its inception. I joined Paul Demeny as co-editor in 2008. Since his retirement in 2012, Landis MacKellar and I have been the editors.
