Bullying takes many forms. It can involve the young and the old. It can come in the form of harassment, threats, physical violence and other behaviour. Sometimes it is difficult to pinpoint and prevent.

In this guide, Éducaloi brings together important information about this issue. We help you understand the legal dimensions of bullying and provide tools to raise awareness among youth about this problem.
