Norway has a national policy to combat bullying and violence in school. Since the 1990s, Norway has led Europe in the development, promotion, and requirement of peer mediation and conflict resolution education in all public schools. In 2002, the Norwegian prime minister signed a manifesto against bullying, and the right of pupils to a safe school environment has been strengthened since 2003. In 2005, the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training developed a new strategic plan for the learning environment in primary and secondary education for 2005–2008. This plan includes efforts to prevent and stop bullying and violence in the schools. The quality framework focuses on social and cultural competence, including training in different forms of interaction, problem solving, and conflict resolution.
