The protection of children from bullying
8 Oct 2018 -  Whether online or in person, bullying is among children’s top concerns. It affects a high proportion of children, compromising their health, emotional well-being and school performance, and is associated with devastating lifelong consequences. On the occasion of the presentation of the Report of the Secretary-General on Protecting Children from Bullying, the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence against Children and the Permanent Missions of Mexico and Lithuania will host a panel discussion in cooperation with UNICEF and UNESCO.
The panel discussion will shed light on the serious impact of bullying on the enjoyment of children’s rights, while acknowledging positive experiences and progress made by Member States in addressing this phenomenon, as well as areas where more efforts are needed to ensure the protection of children from this manifestation of violence.
