World Anti-Bullying Forum

October 25, 2023 @ 8:00 am - October 27, 2023 @ 3:30 pm

The World Anti-Bullying Forum is a meeting place for researchers, policymakers and practitioners in the work against bullying. To end violence against and between children the Swedish NGO Friends initiated the World Anti-Bullying Forum in 2017.

The aims of the World Anti-Bullying Forum are:

  • To address and prevent bullying and other forms of violence among children in accordance with the Convention on the Rights of the Child and Agenda 2030.
  • To facilitate the sharing of knowledge and best practices among researchers, policymakers, and practitioners on preventing bullying among children.
  • To gather, coordinate, and make research-based knowledge on preventing bullying among children easily accessible globally and digitally.

An audience member holds up their finger, everyone looks at them, smiling.
The School of Education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been selected to host the 2023 World Anti-Bullying Forum. The event is to be held October 25-27, 2023, and will be led by Dorothy Espelage, the William C. Friday Distinguished Professor of Education at the UNC School of Education and a leading expert on bullying and youth well-being.

This event is in-person.
