Second World Anti-Bullying Forum in Dublin 2019

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.

The World Anti-Bullying Forum is an unique platform, as it emphasizes the importance of cross-national dialogues, collaborations betweens different scientific disciplines, and knowledge exchange between researchers and practitioners.

Some of the internationally recognized 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 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.

Registration and call for abstracts opens in June 2018.

Lithuanian partner organization releases remake of Friends’ commercials

Friends International Center’s partner, Vaikų linija (Child Line), has re-recorded Friends’ social commercials “Red head” (Rödhårig) and “Together” (Tillsammans) in Lithuanian settings. The commercials are now parts of a nation-wide campaign supported by the President.

– Bullying is a global problem without geographical borders. This advertisement is a good example of how knowledge can be spread, across borders, says Jacob Flärdh Aspegren, Head of Friends International Center.
