Welcome to the Bullying and the Abuse of Power project Home Page. This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary project aims to explore the phenomenon of bullying as it manifests and has manifested itself in a wide range of contexts in the personal, social and global spheres. Bullying is a multi-faceted phenomenon, of interest and concern to academics, professionals and vocational workers of all kinds, including psychologists, sociologists, teachers, ethicists, politicians, social workers, philosophers, theologians, historians, physicians and human rights lawyers. It is present in every sphere of life – from school, which is probably where most people first come across it, and consists, essentially, in the abuse of power. It can involve psychological cruelty; cultural and personal insults; religious and sexual intolerance. Anyone can be bullied; anyone can bully. It goes on in schools, workplaces, on the street; in any context in which people meet people. Bullying damages society; it produces human misery and corrupts societal values. It can ruin lives, and it can end lives. The project will seek to explore and examine bullying in any and all of the contexts mentioned above.
