This special issue highlights research that responded to the Society for Research on Child Development's Ethics and Racial Issues Committee's call for articles on the positive development of minority children. The call was motivated by committee's goal of promoting developmental research on ethnic minority children and adolescents. The articles in this issue report on cutting-edge research that uses dynamic, integrative bioecological, and cultural models to examine the positive development of ethnic minority children. Collectively, they indicate new directions at conceptual, methodological, and empirical levels that can guide further research on the strengths of minority families.
