Bullying in the school environment – which can often result in violence or simply contribute to a series of negative consequences for both the victims and the bullies - has become a major concern across the European Union and beyond. As one of the main reasons of bullying and school violence is determined by the discrimination of youngsters on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity, looking for evidence and practices to generate strategies for inclusive and safe schools, referring to empirical evidence and research results, is essential.

Celebrated once a year in November in England, Anti-Bullying Week is the time to get involved and take a stand against bullying in all its forms, and raise awareness in schools and organisations. Not only can bullying affect children through behavioral changes and long-lasting psychological damage, the whole family can also suffer from a child being harassed.
A meeting in Zagreb under the patronage of Croatian President Mrs Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović brought together experts, teachers and youth from more than a dozen countries worldwide last week.
