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).

Handcuffs, body search, service dog

The introduction of handcuffs, body search and service dogs is nonetheless an overreaction on behalf of the government. The number of abuses of power may increase due to the recent changes initiated by government and accepted by the Parliament.
