Vulnerable Selves, Disciplining Others: New approaches to bullying and conflict at work
The Human Rights and Equality Commission recently started conceptualizing bullying as discrimination and as a breach of human rights. As they emphasise the human right to live without threats or mistreatment, our response as scholars has been prolific yet uni-dimensional, each based in their own echelon and discipline without the necessary cross fertilisation of ideas, far less theory.
About this series
- Building on previous work in this field, Birkbeck, University of London is facilitating a new ESRC series called Vulnerable Selves, Disciplining Others: New approaches to bullying and conflict at work. These topics have been investigated for over twenty years, and much progress has been made to map the field.
- There nevertheless remains a desire to understand more fully the concept of bullying at work in all its vicissitudes, and to this end, these new symposia aim to bring together a truly diverse and fragmented group of experts.
