Together against school bullying

This project realized by Action and Protection Foundation, Háttér Society, the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union and the Romaversitas Foundation aims to reduce school bullying against minorities, especially against Roma, Jewish and LGBTQI youth.

For this purpose we collect good practices from Hungary and abroad, we produce a guidance note for schools and develop and hold a training for schools on its implementation. During the project we also cooperate with teachers’ organizations, the Equal Treatment Authority and other public bodies. The timespan of the project is from April to September 2015. The complete budget for the project is 5000 Euros, which was provided by the Partners Against Anti­Semitism (PAAS) program of the international NGO ADL (Anti­Defamation League).

UPDATE Hungary school incident: CCTV footage does not rule out suspicion of racist acts in Konyár

Hungarian and international NGOs have responded to police statements about a possible racist attack in front of a primary school in Konyár. The Hungarian Police force has stated that there were no human rights violations on 5 September when a busload of football fans stopped in front of the school. The police based their conclusion on an unclear, mute recording, which they recently released. However, according to human rights organisations, the legality of the police reaction is disputable, and the recording is not sufficient to explain what happened in Konyár.

A busload of football fans stopped outside the school, which has a large majority of Roma pupils, and which had to dismiss a teacher for racist comments earlier this year. What happened next is unclear, as police reports differ greatly from eyewitness reports.
