Abstract des Vortrags:

I will give an overview of my dissertation project in which I explored the development of intercultural competence among adolescents attending culturally diverse schools in Germany. Drawing on previous research in developmental, social, and cross-cultural psychology, I hypothesized that developmental aspects (e.g., age and ethnic identity exploration), positive intercultural interactions (e.g., through intercultural friendships or a contact and cooperation climate at school), and active engagement with diverse perspectives (e.g., through intercultural socialization in friendships or a multicultural school climate) are all related to adolescents’ intercultural competence. I tested these relations empirically based on three datasets that were collected in schools in three different regions in Germany. Intercultural competence was assessed using a combination of newly developed self-report measures and situational judgment tests. My findings show that cultural diversity in schools is not only a challenge, but under certain conditions also a resource and an opportunity for individual development.

Alle interessierten Hochschulmitglieder sind herzlich eingeladen.
