Abstract [en]

Peer bullying is considered to be a great problem worldwide. In Sweden severe omissions have been noticed in politicians', school leaders' and schools' measures against harassment among students. The aim of my study by a hermeneutic approach was to describe, analyze and interpret what is expressed in the comprehensive school texts against peer bullying. How are conventions, legislation, research and the opportunity to use organizations implemented in municipality, school district and local school action plans against peer bullying? The investigated documents vary great in quality and quantity and just a few could be considered to be useful tools in the work to prevent and act against peer bullying. Conventions, legislation and the value ground of school are frequently reproduced. The connections to research in the field are almost absent. Established programs against peer bullying could be found, often instrumentally taken out of its context. The opportunity to use organizations against bullying is rarely represented. My conclusions are that the Swedish Board of Education must have better control and evaluation of the anti-harassment work in schools. Institutions for teacher training must expand its education concerning conflicts and communication. The staff in school must organize competence education in the field of peer bullying.
