Abstract: This study examines the effect of motivation to adapt on the cultural adaptation of immigrants under the conceptual framework of Kim’s Cross-cultural Adaptation Theory. Through a survey of 808 Chinese immigrants who have migrated to Singapore in recent years, this study shows that motivation to adapt is a significant factor influencing an individual’s interpersonal communication and mass media communication oriented towards the host society. Such communications, in turn, significantly predict an individual’s extent of intercultural transformation. Factors such as the immigrant’s intended length of stay and perceived receptivity of the host culture have also been found to significantly affect adaptation motivation.

"To Adapt or Not to Adapt: On the Current State of Testing Empirical Utility of the Routine Activities Theory to Account for Cyber Abuse Victimization" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 71st Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1031759_index.html>

Abstract: With the advent of the Internet and the emergence of cyber crimes (e.g. cyber stalking, cyber harassment), criminologists have begun to explore the empirical utility of routine activities theory to account for personal victimization as a consequence of cyber abuse. Available cyber abuse studies have produced inconsistent empirical support for the model, which has reignited the debate about whether terrestrial theories, such as routine activities theory, will ever be able to adequately explain cyber crimes due to the spatial and temporal disconnect between the theories and the cyber environment. This study reviews existing cyber abuse scholarship, explores potential reasons for the weak empirical support for routine activities theory in cyberspace, and proposes several directions for future research. We suggest that in order to further our understanding of cyber abuse processes, scholars need to carefully define and operationalize the key theoretical concepts in the light of latest developments in routine activities theory, and conduct in-depth qualitative studies, as well as quantitative studies that employ robust methodological designs and multi-level modelling.

4. Kim, Young Yun. "Achieving Efficacy in Adapting to a New Culture: A Practical Application of the Integrative Theory of Cross-Cultural Adaptation" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ICA's 67th Annual Conference, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, San Diego, USA, <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1213873_index.html>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Kim’s (1988, 2001) Integrative Theory of Cross-Cultural Adaptation offers a holistic account of the evolutionary process in and through which individuals are able to attain, over time, an increased level of functional fitness and psychological health, as well as a gradual and largely unconscious change in identity toward an increasingly intercultural one. The three-pronged process model of the stress-adaptation-growth dynamic captures the dialectic, cyclic, and continual draw-back-to-leap process of internal change unfolding over time. The theory also provides a structural model, in which key factors of the individual’s background (ethnicity, personality, and preparedness for change) and the host environment (host receptivity, host conformity pressure, and ethnic group strength) influence, and are influenced by, the individual’s communication patterns (host communication competence, host interpersonal communication, and host mass communication). Emanating from this systemic theoretical account are a host of practical ideas that can help increase the efficacy of an individual’s life vis-à-vis the host environment. These ideas pertain to the actions to be taken by the individual himself/herself, the local community, and the co-ethnic community, as well as the host society at large. Most fundamental to achieving efficacy of life in a new culture is for the individual to be willing to embrace the stressful experiences of new cultural learning, engage himself/herself actively in the local social processes, and acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to communicate effectively with local people.
