Cyberbullying is a problem that is being increasingly investigated by researchers, however, much of the cyberbullying research literature to date has focused on children and youth. Cyberbullying at University in International Contexts fills the gap in the research literature by examining the nature, extent, impacts, proposed solutions, and policy and practice considerations of bullying in the cyber-world at post-secondary institutions, where reports of serious cyberbullying incidents have become more prevalent.

This book brings together cutting-edge research from around the world to examine the issue of cyberbullying through a multi-disciplinary lens, offering an array of approaches, interpretations, and solutions. It is not solely focused on cyberbullying by and against students, but also includes cyberbullying by and against faculty members, and permutations involving both students and faculty, as well as institutional staff, presenting perspectives from students, practitioners and senior university policy makers. It draws on research from education, criminology, psychology, sociology, communications, law, health sciences, social work, humanities, labour studies and is valuable reading for graduate students in these fields. It is also essential reading for policymakers, practitioners and University administrators who recognize their responsibility to provide a healthy workplace for their staff, as well as a safe and respectful environment for their students.

Cyberbullying has become a prominent issue of the last decade. Most research has been on the phenomenon in school-age children, but as this volume demonstrates, it is also prominent amongst young adults, including those at college or university. This valuable collection includes contributions from many different countries and using different methodologies. They demonstrate the negative impact that cyberbullying has, discuss risk factors, and contribute to ways of tackling it effectively. The research presented is both a challenge to all concerned to improve cyber safety, but also a valuable source of knowledge and practical actions to help do so. Peter K Smith, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK

Cyberbullying at University in International Contexts is essential reading for researchers, educators and policy-makers in the increasingly recognized world-wide problem of bullying at university level, among students and faculty. The consequences of cyberbullying for young people's mental health are considered as well as innovative interventions to challenge cyberbullying when it occurs. This interdisciplinary, cross-cultural book offers many important insights all grounded in thorough research evidence. Professor Helen Cowie, University of Surrey, UK

A hugely important and timely addition to the toolbox of those researchers and practitioners who have a remit to protect the most vulnerable in our universities and beyond. Scholarly and multi-disciplinary, this work explores all of the important issues. Ground breaking and seminal. Conor McGuckin, Assistant Professor, Trinity College Dublin, School of Education, UK
