The Anti-Bullying Centre
Building on legacy of over 20 years of research on bullying started by Prof. Mona O’Moore, the Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre was re-launched by both the Tánaiste and the Minister for Education & Skills in 2014.
Researchers at ABC were the first in Ireland to undertake research on school bullying, workplace bullying, homophobic bullying and cyberbullying. ABC leads the field of research, resource development and training in bullying in Ireland and is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in bullying research. Our team work in a collaborative environment in which they study the multi-factored causes of the problem of bullying and translate our findings into resources and training to tackle bullying.
The objectives of the National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre are aligned to support the UN’s overarching goal to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030 (SDG4).
The Centre’s activities are supported by the Department of Education & Skills under the National Action Plan on Bullying, the EU Erasmus+ Framework Program for Education, Training, Youth and Sport, DCU Research and Innovation Unit, Enterprise Ireland, the Irish Research Council, the Fulbright Commission, the Ireland Canada University Foundation, and DCU Institute of Education.
