ABSTRACT

In recent years, Korean society has witnessed the rapid increase of cultural diversity with the mass influx of foreign immigrants. Nevertheless, multicultural receptivity or multicultural attitudes of Korean adolescents remains low and has received relatively little attention by researchers. In addition, multicultural receptivity was much neglected in the current youth policies. Conducting international comparisons to identify the current status of the Korean youth in terms of multicultural attitudes, this study explored policy implications for promoting multicultural attitudes through the empirical analysis. For this, data from the International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (2009) was analyzed examining factors that were expected to affect multicultural attitudes of Korean youth to give useful evidence required to reframe multicultural crisis management and policy.
