ABSTRACT

This study analyzes the influence of Korean natives’ multicultural acceptance on self-concept and school achievement among migrant background youth, using the five-year longitudinal data (2013-2017) from KELS 2013. It also examines the interaction effects of multicultural acceptance and social support. The results show that: (i) the multicultural acceptance (diversity) of natives has a positive impact on the family self-concept but negative impact on the physical self-concept of migrant adolescents; (ii) the multicultural acceptance (relationship) has a positive effect on the academic achievement of migrant adolescents; (iii) social support plays significant roles in controlling the influence of natives’ multicultural acceptance on migrant adolescents’ self-concept and academic achievement. The findings suggest that there is a need of continued policy efforts to improve the acceptance of multiculturalism and to expand the social support system for migrant adolescents in Korea.
