Bullies, Bullied and Bystanders:
Advancing Knowledge, Understanding and Practice in Education
9th - 10th June 2016
Building upon 20 years of research on bullying at ABC National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre, Dublin City University Ireland and 30 years of research at the Norwegian Centre for Learning Environment and Behavioural Research in Education, this international scholarly conference will advance existing knowledge, understanding and practice about traditional and online bullying related to educational settings.
The aim of the conference is to provide an interface in which international scholars and practitioners can consider how best to prevent and counteract bullying in all its forms. From both theoretical and empirical perspectives, contributors will consider the influence of culture and ethnic differences in societal attitudes and values about bullying.
The conference will be of particular interest to scholars and practitioners who wish to explore the role of those who engage in traditional and online bullying behaviour, those who are bullied and the role of bystanders related to educational settings.
Papers will be presented at this conference from individuals who approach bullying from theoretical and empirical perspectives in Education, Arts, Health, Humanities, Social Sciences, Technologies and Bio-medical disciplines.
