The International Network on School Bullying and Violence (see http://oecd-sbv.net/ ) aims to support countries seeking to combat school bullying and violence by:
* Sharing and disseminating information on experience, research and good practice in the field;
* Providing a platform for co-operation on particular issues, for example on the problems of implementation or evaluation;
* Facilitating contacts – for example among practitioners in different countries, or between researchers on the one hand and policy-makers and practitioners on the other;
* Providing a point of linkage with other international networks working in related fields
The International Network was part of the 2005-6 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Programme of Work and is now part of the Programme of Work 2007-11. The International Network on School Bullying and Violence was founded after the international conference ‘Taking Fear out of Schools’ in 2004.
