Immigrants’ adaptation to different cultural settings: A contextual perspective on acculturation


Titzmann, P F; Fuligni, A J (2015). Immigrants’ adaptation to different cultural settings: A contextual perspective on acculturation. International Journal of Psychology, 50(6):407-412.

Abstract

In modern multicultural societies more and more individuals deal with 2 or more cultures due to the unprecedented increase in international migration. This special section brings together research about immigrants' adaptation to various life domains, about the demands of dealing with different cultural scripts and about how immigrants can successfully bridge different cultural demands. This introduction to the special section provides a broader theoretical framework that links the different studies of the special section and demonstrates areas for further research. It also clearly illustrates the growing necessity for research in increasingly diverse societies.
