Family life beyond ethnocentric beliefs: Developmental psychological challenges and exploring ethnically mixed couple relationships

Publikation: AndetAndet bidragForskning


The lecture focuses on family life in the globalised world. In the European context, including the academic settings, globalisation, and current global upheavals entail encounters with diverse family life. I combine the major aspects of a developmental psychological perspective, such as temporal phases and transformations, with ethical considerations, for studying family life beyond ethno/eurocentric beliefs. An empirical study in Denmark dealing with ethnically mixed marriages and parenting (Singla, 2015) illustrates the theoretical concepts. Additionally, possibilities for future academic collaboration in the field are taken up.
