International Bullying Prevention Conference
Ethnic Diversity, Ethnic Densities, and Bullying

Susan Limber, PhD., MLS, Dan Olweus Professor, Clemson University

Limited research is available on the roles that race and ethnicity at school level play in bullying among children and youth. Using multilevel modeling and a large sample, this study, which examined the degree to which bullying may vary according to racial/ethnic diversity and density, was intended to help address this gap in knowledge. Results indicated that the importance of ethnic diversity and density should be addressed in bullying research and prevention efforts.
