CFP: Bullying and the Abuse of Power

Prague, Czech Republic, November 8-10, 2010.

"Bullying is present in every sphere of life and is perhaps the most important ethical problem in the modern world. It consists, essentially, in the abuse of power, and can involve psychological cruelty; cultural and personal insults; religious and sexual intolerance; the abuse of political and economic power, and ultimately physical force. It can ruin lives, and it can end lives Like other enduring cultural phenomena it has an ability to mutate into new forms including the invasive use of email to intimidate people, and the use of text messaging and social networking sites, which have claimed lives through the suicide of victims."
Submission deadline for abstracts: May 28, 2010.
