A comparative study of the determinants of youth well-being: Global competence, social engagement, media and information literacy

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers

Abstract

Objective: The purposes of this presentation are to: provide an overview of all the presentations, identify themes across the papers’, suggest strengths and weaknesses in each of the papers of the papers; and indicate what might be future directions for research in the area.
Method: The papers will be submitted to the Discussant prior to the conference so that a considered response can be developed. Given the length of time for the session, the I shall synthesize the key issues and also indicate future directions for research.
Results: The results of the above analysis will be framed to address the key issues raised by the conceptual framework for this research. In this framework, young people’s attitudes and values will classified according to the influences on student wellbeing. The results will thus enable an evaluation of the effectiveness of the study’s conceptual framework. It is not expected that the results across countries will necessarily be invariant because context plays an important role in influencing the construction of civic attitudes and values. Thus variation rather than uniformity across countries is expected. Nevertheless, the robustness of the common survey instrument that was used across countries and the accompanying qualitative data will be evaluated in this presentation.
Conclusions: This session will be concluded with an assessment of how the papers presented have contributed to the literature on student wellbeing. In particular, the questions they have raised within the different country contexts will be highlighted. Given the cross-national nature of the papers in this session their contribution to comparative political psychology research will be assessed. Copyright © 2023 The Author(s).
