Abstract:

Bullying is the intentional, repetitive or persistent hurting of one pupil by another (or several), where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. The act can be verbal, physical and/or psychological harassment. Although bullying in schools is not a new phenomenon, little research on this subject has been carried out in Switzerland. The literature shows that the consequences on the victims are serious. Moreover, the authors of bullying commit more delinquent acts.
The present study analyses bullying in Swiss secondary schools and establishes the variables most strongly related to bullying. Youths with a low level of self-control and adopting a positive attitude towards violence are more likely to bully others. The importance of environmental variables is also shown: the risks of a youth committing bullying decrease when supervision and monitoring by adults are strong, and when the authorities (school, neighbourhood) exercise social control by making the rules to be respected and by intervening in an impartial way. The use of multilevel analyses permitted to show the existence of effects of the school on bullying. The relative importance of different school-related factors is discussed.
