Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Gender-based violence and bullying are critical issues that impact individuals across societies and cultural backgrounds. They can cause severe physical, psychological, and emotional harm to victims, perpetuating cycles of trauma and marginalization. Moreover, bullying and gender-based violence often intersect, reinforcing power dynamics, perpetuating harm, and contributing to a climate of fear and inequality. As we strive to create a more inclusive and equitable world, understanding and addressing these complex problems becomes crucial. Understanding the complex interplay between bullying and gender-based violence is crucial for developing effective interventions and strategies to combat these pervasive issues. To contribute to this important dialogue and, specially, to explore the nuanced connections between these phenomena, we invite researchers, scholars, and practitioners to submit their work for this special issue focusing on gender-based violence and bullying.

This special issue aims to provide a comprehensive platform for multidisciplinary research and scholarly discussions on gender-based violence and bullying. We welcome original research articles, literature reviews, case studies, and theoretical perspectives that address, but are not limited to, the following topics:

1.Conceptual frameworks and theoretical perspectives on the intersections between bullying and gender-based violence;

2.Forms and manifestations of gender-based violence and bullying;

3.Empirical studies on the prevalence, incidence, and consequences of gender-based violence and bullying;

10.Prevention strategies and interventions to address gender-based violence and bullying;

11.Policies, legislation, and legal frameworks related to gender-based violence and bullying
