Abstract(original):
Our chapter assumes a methodological perspective on SDGs. Three methodological challenges in the measurement and monitoring SDG goals and other comparative studies on aspects related to sustainable development are illustrated with examples from large-scale international educational survey and positive youth development. These challenges are (1) to strike a balance between emic (culture-specific) and etic (culture-comparative) perspectives; (2) the need to employ a systematic framework to analyze cross-cultural data; and (3) the infrequent usage of test adaptations. We argue that culture-comparative (etic) and culture-specific (emic) studies are too easily seen as incompatible and that we can learn much from combining the two perspectives. Adapting concepts and instruments to ensure validity and comparability of data in different cultural contexts is a useful way of integrating emic and etic perspectives. We illustrate the procedures with examples of Positive Youth Development studies. (DIPF/Orig.)
