Bullying

“Any failure to treat bullying, abuse and violence seriously, because it occurs between students, within schools, is a violation of a child’s human rights.”

  ~New Zealand Human Rights Commission

Bullying is not simply about threats, intimidation, and violence; it is an abuse of a child’s human rights. Addressing bullying from a human rights perspective addresses all forms of bullying, both those based on bias toward a particular group (e.g., race, religion, ethnicity), and those rising from personal animosity (e.g., jealousy, status, class, appearance, individual idiosyncrasy).
