Posted: January 27, 2014

Work by John W. Traphagan, PRC researcher and Professor of Religious Studies, was featured in the January 20th issue of The National Interest. Traphagan’s article, “Japan: Death by Demographics” which addresses Japan’s low fertility and associated population decline, was also listed on the BBC’s must-read section of their web site for best opinion pieces from around the world.
