Going global: New pathways for adolescents and emerging adults in a changing world
This article reviews theory and research on the implications of globalization for cultural identity formation in adolescence (ages 10-18) and emerging adulthood (ages 18-29). Theories of immigrant acculturation are extended to globalization to demonstrate how adolescent and emerging adult cultural identity development follows a variety of pathways in a global world. The article includes a discussion of how this opening up of plural developmental pathways comes with risks and opportunities. Here, cultural identity confusion, civic involvement, and gender equality are discussed. © 2012 The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues.
