The objectives of the research are:

  • To investigate the type and extent of bullying that Roma children experience in schools in
    Ireland and Cyprus
  • To determine if there are differences in countries across Europe and why these differences
    might exist (e.g., better legislation or policy that could be harnessed elsewhere)
  • To investigate gender issues and discrimination among girls in particular
  • To determine the useful methods of intervention for bullying or Roma children so that
    recommendations can be made to the respective legislators and Education Departments in
    order to reduce bullying

To this end there are three types of information collected for this project:

  1. Examining the experiences of Roma students and other students in schools in Ireland and
    Cyprus in regards to bullying and inclusion, and what could be done to improve the
  2. Teacher’s experiences of bullying inclusion and opinions on school climate and what might
    be improved.
