UNESCO and the French Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports organize an International Conference on School Bullying on 5 November 2020. The conference builds on commitments made at the July 2019 meeting of education ministers of the G7, under the French Presidency, and marks the celebration of the first-ever International Day Against Violence and Bullying at School including Cyberbullying.
This document presents a summary of a first set of recommendations made by the Scientific Committee on three key issues:
- How should the definition of school bullying be revisited to develop more comprehensive and targeted initiatives to tackle bullying in all its forms? What aspects should be considered for a more inclusive definition?
- How effective national responses to bullying should look like, based on existing evidence? What are the key components and characteristics of a comprehensive approach to bullying and cyberbullying?
- What additional or specific strategies and actions should be taken into consideration when planning and implementing responses to cyberbullying?
