Avoiding Ethnocentrism


How can an understanding of culture and human development help the behavioral sciences avoid ethnocentrism? In this webinar, presented as a conversation hour at the 2021 biennial meeting of the Society for Research in Child Development, four scholars from around the globe – Botswana, Brazil, Ghana, and Hong Kong – share their views on this topic.


Moderated by researchers from the Netherlands and the USA, the webinar addresses the challenge of constructing a pluralistic developmental science that works for humanity in all its global complexity.
