Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore and Education Minister Ruairí Quinn today jointly launched the National Anti-Bullying Centre in DCU.
The Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre (ABC) was founded in 1996 by Professor Mona O’Moore.
Since it was founded ABC has led the field of research in school and workplace bullying in Ireland and is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in bullying research.
In 2013, ABC moved to the School of Education Studies at Dublin City University where it is now jointly led by Professor Mona O’Moore and Dr. James O’Higgins Norman.
The aims of ABC remain:
- To conduct research into the multi-level and multi-factorial nature of bullying behaviour.
- The creation of greater awareness and understanding of bullying behaviour.
- The promotion of ways and means by which bullying behaviour may be prevented or reduced.
Currently, I am a PhD researcher with the Anti-Bullying Centre at DCU studying school bullying and the law.
