Policy landscape in Turkey on school bullying an exploration of main issues and shortcomings from a socio-ecological perspective

Adıkutlu, Osman
This thesis argues – and will seek to demonstrate that – policy implementations regarding violence and bullying against children in Turkey are still far from being adequate. Despite the improvements, Turkey still fares poor in relation to the aspirations of the international standards. There exist significant gaps to be addressed and fulfilled in overall understanding of violence, in legislation and implementation at school settings. Within the framework of this observation, the thesis, by adopting a socio-ecological theoretical perspective, questions the social and institutional dimensions that determine the broad social policy framework and the quality of educational settings.
