Call for Papers: Significance of Race and Ethnicity in Bullying

More news about the topic

Social, public, and research attention toward understanding and addressing bullying has soared during the past several decades, resulting in a solid and substantial evidence base detailing the various sociocultural factors and inequalities associated with bullying. The disparate causes, correlates, and consequences associated with bullying can often compound the vulnerabilities of already marginalized youth. One of the many diverse sociocultural factors and inequalities associated with the stratification of bullying is race and ethnicity.

Although interdisciplinary researchers – including child and school psychology, public health, social work and counselling, sociology, criminology, developmental psychology – have repeatedly found racial and ethnic disparities in bullying, these factors are not typically at the centre of these studies. This special issue of the International Journal of Bullying Intervention explores research that centres the significance of race and ethnicity toward the causes, forms, and multiple contexts of bullying as well as best-practices in prevention and intervention.
