Ending The Torment

Tackling bullying from the schoolyard to cyberspace

“Whether  it happens online or in person, bullying is one of children’s top  concerns around the world. The latest data is very worrying; worldwide  more than 1 in 3 students (130 million) between 13 and 15 years of age  experience bullying regularly. This has dire consequences on their  health, development and emotional well-being. My Office was therefore  very committed to work with Member States, United Nations  partners, independent national human rights institutions and civil  society organizations to inform this new report, including through three  global consultations which have helped shine a light on progress made  since 2016 and key areas where urgent action is needed”, said SRSG  Santos Pais. 

The  second report of the Secretary-General gives particular attention to  laws and policies that have been put in place, supported by awareness  raising initiatives at national level to prevent bullying, including  online. Attention is also given to restorative practices that aim to  repair harm and rebuild relationships while addressing accountability of  those responsible. The report recognizes the critical importance of  research and data to inform effective and sustainable interventions;  and, above all, the importance of engaging children to learn from their  experiences, and to benefit from their insights to ensure the safeguard  of their rights. 


“Children  are key experts on bullying; they are the ones who suffer from its  harmful effect, but they are also uniquely placed to inform solutions,”  said Santos Pais.

“The  way children treat each other at school mirrors the way adults treat  each other in society. This means that crudeness, violence and  slanderous language are all in effect, even in childhood.”

The V Sign

The V Sign

The V Sign equips kids with an easy way to self-protect by silently identifying they need your help.  A child can make the V Sign walking down the street,  in a hotel lobby, airport, from a car,  bus or train window, restaurant, grocery store or simply standing on the street  corner.  

When you see the V Sign call the police immediately.

STOP Bullying

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged  children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior  is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids  who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems

In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive.
