Research Opportunity

The Bullying Research Network and the World Anti-Bullying Forum are seeking international researchers interested in collaborating on a study examining teacher responses to peer conflict and bullying across the globe.

Given that bullying typically first occurs in the school context, teachers play a critical role in addressing and solving the problem. Extending our understanding of teacher responses to peer conflict and bullying (see the recent 2021 special issue in the European Journal of Developmental Psychology), we invite researchers to join us in an international research collaboration, overseen by Drs. Wendy Craig (Queens University, Canada), Shelley Hymel (University of British Columbia, Canada), and Susan Swearer (University of Nebraska – Lincoln, United States).

Interested collaborators will be asked to participate, virtually or in-person, in an initial meeting at the forthcoming meeting of the World Anti-Bullying Forum to be held in Stockholm, Sweden. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021.
