■ Abstract The capacity to exercise control over the nature and quality of one’s life is the essence,of humanness.,Human,agency,is characterized by a number,of core features that operate through,phenomenal,and functional consciousness. These include the temporal extension of agency through intentionality and forethought, self- regulation by self-reactive influence, and self-reflectiveness about one’s capabilities, quality of functioning, and the meaning and purpose of one’s life pursuits. Personal agency,operates within a broad network,of sociostructural influences. In these agentic transactions, people are producers as well as products of social systems. Social cogni- tive theory distinguishes among three modes of agency: direct personal agency, proxy agency that relies on others to act on one’s behest to secure desired outcomes, and collective agency,exercised through socially coordinative and interdependent,effort. Growing,transnational embeddedness,and interdependence,are placing a premium,on collective efficacy to exercise control over personal destinies and national life. CONTENTS
