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.


Key Dates:
Monday, 8 June 2020 – Pre-conference Workshops (SIGs and PhD)
Tuesday, 9 to Thursday, 11 June 2020 - 3 day Conference

We look forward to seeing you in Dubai!

Dr Alison Thirlwall & Dr Alastair Watson
Conference Co-Chairs
