IAWBH2020 12th International Conference on Workplace Bullying and Harassment

Developing an Oasis of Workplace Bullying Knowledge and Practice: People, Places, and Perspectives

Dubai, UAE – 8 to 11 June 2020

Welcome to the 12th IAWBH Conference


Bullying and Harassment are complex interpersonal and social issues that are influenced by organisational and global cultures. It is important to broaden our understanding of workplace bullying and to create a stronger bridge between the disciplines, by spreading knowledge to practitioners, researchers and decision-makers around the world to improve tolerance and sustainability.

The purpose of the conference is to identify where inadequacies and smokescreens exist in global policy versus organisational policy and action, and work toward developing strategies to safeguard our global workforces. In a complex, multi-national environment, it is important to consider the impact on not only employees as targets, perpetrators, and witnesses but also the cultural views of organisations and the regions in which they operate.
