DESCRIPTION OF THE GOOD PRACTICE:



The Observatory is made of members coming from all countries (USA, France, UK, Belgium, Israel, Japan, Germany, Canada, Mexico...). The members are mainly lecturers, researchers, professionals, but also students as well as any person involved in the field of the fight against violence at school.



The Observatory also has moral members (Scientific laboratories, local, national and international observatories), that can never directly issue from governments or international political institutions.



A reading scientific committee supervises the magazine and its on-line publishing, the IJVS (International Journal on Violence and Schools). This scientific committee is multidisciplinary and includes researchers from 14 countries. It aims to realise publications reaching a high level of scientific standard.




  • 1. To implement the international conferences on violence at school with the support of the national observatories and of the scientific laboratories

  • 2. To publish on line a specialized magazine, with a scientific committee of reading, according to the principle of the blind double valuation. The IJVS has been created in 2005.

  • 3. To take sides on public declarations, on implemented politics and programmes which will be reported by the members of NGO

    prometteuses, en fonction de la littérature scientifique disponible.

  • 4. To realise a synthesis on the effective, ineffective or hopeful actions, according to the available scientific literature.


RESULTS:

  • 1 :
    The gathering, the encouragement and the dissemination of multidisciplinary scientific studies on the phenomenon of violence at school.

  • 3 :
    The scientific evaluation of the programmes and public policies to fight against the phenomenon.



  • 4 :
    The realisation and the regular publishing of a report on violence at school worldwide.



  • 5 :
    The elaboration of concrete proposals for practical actions based on the results of scientific surveys.



  • 6 :
    Help for the teachers’ and professionals’ training



  • 7 :
    The training on the research on violence at school and the support to the young researchers willing to commit themselves in a project in that field.

INDICATORS:

Definition of bullying or cyberbullying, Detection protocol, Intervention protocol, Teacher training, School conferences.

EVALUATION:

The international federation of researchers in the field of violence at school has been created in 1998, on initiative of the European Observatory of violence at school. As the years and the international conferences go by, this federation has reached a sure maturity and has gone beyond the European territory. That is why it has been decided to create an “International Observatory of Violence at School”, recognizing that way the establishment of a worldwide structure.



Following the international conferences organised in 2003 in Quebec, in 2006 in Bordeau, in 2007 in England and in 2009 in Ottawa, the network of researchers has expanded and the amount of new works is constantly increasing.
