ABC Hosted the First Meeting with Partners in a New European COST Project

The National Anti-Bullying Centre (ABC) hosted the first meeting of the COST Action – Transnational Collaboration on Bullying, Migration, and Integration at School Level (TRIBES) Project in Brussels, Belgium, on the 2nd of April 2019. The TRIBES Project is a multidisciplinary initiative involving 13 countries including Ireland as the leading country. ABC’s Prof. James O’Higgins Norman was elected by the partner countries as the Chair of the Project, and Prof. Hildegunn Fandrem, from Stavanger University in Norway, was elected as the vice-chair. It is anticipated that the TRIBES Project will run until 2023. The project will strive to reach these goals by establishing a collaborative network, foster, share and support knowledge, and advance research through the creation of six working groups.  At Tuesday’s meeting, significant progress was made by setting up these collaborative working groups. More information about the TRIBES Project can be found in the Moratorium of Understanding accessed here. The next joint meeting in September/October 2019 in Dublin.
