In diesem Zusammenhang trägt der Begriff „demographischer Wandel“ die Bedeutung, dass langfristig eine Abnahme der bundesdeutschen Bevölkerung zu erwarten ist und der Anteil der älteren Bürger stark zunimmt.
Fällt der Blick jedoch über die Grenzen der BRD hinaus und verlässt den europäischen Kontinent, so hat „demographischer Wandel“ plötzlich eine ganz andere Bedeutung. Hier bedeutet „demographischer Wandel“, dass die Bevölkerung, insbesondere in Ländern der Dritten Welt, stark zunimmt. Der weltweite „demographische Wandel“ wird in der Politik weniger nationwide als vielmehr foreign diskutiert. Auf eine Auseinandersetzung mit internationalen Organisationen, wie beispielsweise Europäische Union (EU), Vereinte Nationen (UN) oder G eight, die aktiv Entwicklungspolitik betreiben, muss aufgrund des Umfangs dieser Arbeit verzichtet werden.
