The fighter, the punk and the clown – how to overcome the position of victim of bullying?

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Despite extensive research on the causes of bullying and how it can be stopped, little is known about how or why some children overcome or transgress their position as victim of bullying. Based on analyses of three “extreme cases” in which peer victimization have been stopped or prevented, the paper attempts to describe how and why some children succeed in overcoming their position of victim of bullying. The analyses indicate that it is possible to exceed or avert the victim position, but the strategies applied are different and the issue of dignity emerges as important in the victims’ struggle for acceptance.
