Friends’ initiative World Anti-Bullying Forum in Ireland 2019!

30 January 2018

After last year’s success of the first World Anti-Bullying Forum, we are happy to announce that the second forum will take place in Dublin, Ireland, June 4-6 2019. Internationally recognized experts and practitioners will partake in the unique conference. It is a platform which aims to broaden the global understanding of how to stop and prevent bullying among children and youth, by sharing knowledge and exploring new perspectives.

“The forum will emphasize the importance of cross-national dialogues and create a stronger bridge between different scientific disciplines, as well as between research and practitioners, to make the best-known knowledge used where it really creates change for children and youth”, says Jacob Flärdh Aspegren, Head of Friends International Center against Bullying.

A number of leading international researchers and experts within the area will present their work during the conference. Some keynote presenters are Susan Swearer (US), Christina Salmivalli (FI), Dorte Marie Søndergaard (DK), Kevin Kumashiro (US), Michael Kyobe (SA), Christian Berger Silva (CL), Alan Goodboy (US), René Veenstra (NL) and Shoko Yoneyama (JP).

Friends International Center against Bullying is the initiator of the international forum, which will be arranged together with the National Anti Bullying Research and Resource Centre of the Dublin City University in Ireland and the US based International Bullying Prevention Association.

“Bullying is a universal problem and so we have invited experts from every corner of the globe who will help us to deepen our knowledge and expand our skills in tackling bullying among children and young people”, says James O’Higgins Norman, director of the National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre at DCU.

“It is critical for educators and community leaders to stay abreast of the research and strategies that promote a sense of belonging in the school and community. This conference provides these strategies and will enable participants to make a significant impact in their sphere of influence, we are proud to be a partner on this global event”, adds IBPA’s Executive Director, Lynn Lonsway.

The first World Anti-Bullying Forum took place in Stockholm, Sweden in 2017, with 550 participants from 37 countries.
