Advancing research, policy and practice in global contexts in spring 2021 was published by Springer with editors Radosveta Dimitrova and Norea Wiium. The volume includes 37 specifically selected chapters that are innovative and diverse in theoretical and methodological approaches (e.g., cross-cultural, multinational, experimental, longitudinal, mixed-methods) as well as inclusive with participants from diverse cultural, ethnic and sociodemographic backgrounds (N = 22,083). The intention is to advance a multidisciplinary science scholarship on Positive Youth Development (PYD) toward a more inclusive understanding of the psychological experiences, mechanisms and correlates of positive development among young people in a global perspective.
