The project aims to analyze the phenomenon of cyberbullying, especially looking at its influencing factors, its patterns and its effects on adolescents. Following a multi-level approach, not only the personal level but also structural and systematical factors will be considered. In a longitudinal perspective, dynamics of the cyberbullying process will be analyzed.
Research will be conducted using a holistic, 3-wave panel survey of students and teachers integrating different types of schools. In addition to ego-centered variables the panel-design will include the reconstruction of social structures at schools applying social network analysis.
The project is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) for 36 months.
