This article takes a human rights approach to analysing the phenomenon of school bullying and specifies which international human rights instruments are applicable to this violent problem. The article then moves to a discussion of groups targeted by bullying, focusing on homophobic-, gender- and xenophobic-based bullying as well as bullying linked to special educational needs (disabilities) and socioeconomic status. The second part of the article presents the principles behind bullying interventions through a human rights perspective. Anti-bullying interventions are analysed along with the necessary curricular considerations, including pedagogy, didactic principles and evaluation.
