According to a report released by the World Health Organization (WHO) European Regional Office on Wednesday (March 27), nearly 1/6 more teenagers have experienced online bullying than before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The WHO research report titled "Health Behavior of School-age Children" (HBSC survey) covered 44 countries in Europe, Central Asia and Canada, and surveyed 279,000 children and adolescents.
WHO的这份题为“学龄儿童的健康行为”(HBSC survey)的研究报告涵盖了欧洲、中亚和加拿大等44个国家,针对27.9万名儿童和青少年进行了调查。

The report shows that 16% of children aged 11 to 15 have experienced online bullying in 2022, up from 13% four years ago. 15% of boys and 16% of girls said they have been bullied online at least once in recent months. Road bullying.

"This report is a wake-up call for us all to address bullying and violence wherever they occur," Hans Kluge, WHO regional director for Europe, said in a statement. Where did it happen?”
世卫组织欧洲区域主任汉斯·克鲁格(Hans Kluge)在一份声明中表示:“这份报告给我们所有人敲响了警钟,要求我们解决霸凌和暴力问题,无论它们在何时何地发生。”

WHO pointed out that the new crown epidemic has changed the behavior of teenagers towards each other. "Virtual forms of violence among peers have become particularly salient at a time when young people's world has become increasingly virtual during lockdown since the outbreak of COVID-19," the report said.

Data for other bullying behaviors remained largely stable, with only slight increases. According to the report, 11% of boys and girls said they had been bullied at school at least two or three times a month in the past few months, compared with 10% four years ago.

Boys in Bulgaria, Lithuania, Moldova and Poland suffered the highest levels of cyberbullying, while Spain had the lowest levels, although the WHO did not provide detailed data.

"With young people spending up to six hours a day online, even small changes in rates of bullying and violence could have a profound impact on the health and wellbeing of thousands of people," Krueger said.

According to the report, one in eight teenagers admitted to cyberbullying, a figure that increased by 3 percentage points from 2018. At the same time, the proportion of teenagers who had physical conflicts with others remained stable at 10% over four years, with 14% of boys and 6% of girls.

In most places, cyberbullying peaks at age 11 for boys and 13 for girls.

In addition, the report found that the socioeconomic status of parents has little impact on children's behavior. But Canada is a special case, where disadvantaged young people are more likely to be bullied.

In Canada, 27% of girls from the least affluent 20% of families said they had been bullied at school, while 21% of girls from the richest 20% of families said they had been bullied at school.

This report concludes that these problems are widespread. The report calls for greater awareness-raising and suggests that there should be more resources to monitor and understand different forms of peer violence so that the problem can be responded to and tackled more effectively.

"There is an urgent need to educate young people, families and schools about the forms and impacts of cyberbullying, and to regulate social media platforms to limit cyberbullying," the report concluded.
