    VIOLENCE AT SCHOOL

    When we talk about violence at school or school violence, we understand it as intentionally harmful action between members of the educational community that takes place within the physical spaces of the school premises or in other spaces directly related to school (around the school or places where activities take place outside the school). Bullying in schools can take many forms, ranging from physical violence, sexual violence to psychological violence, and often results in acts of intimidation and repression. (Council of Europe, 2020). Bullying has been widely documented as one of the most widespread forms of school violence, affecting 1 in 3 young people. A report recently published by UNESCO reveals that more than 30% of pupils worldwide have been victims of bullying. (UNESCO, 2020).
