Current Status of Bullying Issues in Japan
According to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s “Survey on Issues in Student Guidance such as Problematic Behavior and School Non-attendance in the Child System”, the number of bullying recognition cases in FY 2021 was the highest ever, and suicide (including attempted suicide) and failure The number of serious incidents such as school attendance has exceeded 700, the same as in 2019, making it a serious situation.

https://www.mext.go.jp/content/20221021-mxt_jidou02-100002753_1.pdf Otsu City 2 In 2013, the Act on Promotion of Measures to Prevent Bullying was enacted and enforced in the wake of bullying-suicide incidents. Ten years have passed since then, and despite the widespread recognition that bullying is bad, the number of known cases has not decreased. If you include cases that teachers and schools do not “recognize” as bullying, the above number of investigations may be the tip of the iceberg. Moreover, bullying is not a problem that will go away once you graduate from school. It can have enormous negative effects later in life, such as mental health in adulthood, withdrawal, and more. Studies around the world have shown that bullying affects victims, perpetrators, and bystanders alike. If left unchecked, it will develop into a serious social problem. In order to prevent bullying, various measures have been worked out through the efforts of not only the schools, but also the government, legal professions, and research institutes. However, as long as there is no stopping the increase, it is necessary to change our perception that “the measures we have taken so far may not be sufficient” and try a new approach. Therefore, we advocate an approach using “science”. In April 2023, we launched the “Children’s Bullying Prevention Association”.
Goals of the Child Bullying Prevention Association
The Society upholds the following three principles.
Protecting the human rights and mental and physical safety of all children is our number one priority, and we will consider better methods and approaches for preventing bullying, dealing with bullying, supporting victims of bullying, and guiding perpetrators.
Emphasis on using science.
Anyone who agrees with the principles of (1) and (2) above can participate. In addition, there is a reason why we set up a “society” instead of a group or a study group. Bringing science into anti-bullying and improving its quality requires a multidisciplinary approach. Teachers, government officials, legal professionals, researchers, and others who are working hard in schools across the country, who are working to prevent and prevent bullying, and to support and guide children who have been victims of bullying.
The power of such people is essential to deal with bullying, which is becoming a serious social problem, and to overcome the situation. Then, in order to gather that power, I decided that “it should be an academic society.” In the future, we will call on many experts, practitioners, and educators across fields to participate, as well as those who have experienced bullying, parents, and anyone who wants to cooperate in eliminating bullying. We aim to solicit opinions from a wide range of people and gather their strengths.

“There are children who are deeply hurt to the point of committing suicide even by trivial things.” “Even though they know it is wrong, it still happens.” You have to clarify what you need. What causes bullying and what are its effects? People of various occupations and positions are involved in the recovery of deeply wounded children, how to deal with children who have become the perpetrators of bullying, and how schools and other organizations should conduct third-party investigations into serious situations of bullying. Therefore, we have the foundation to make use of diverse knowledge. I want to create a platform that adds scientific knowledge to that foundation, and create a society where no child suffers from bullying. It is from this thought that the “Children’s Bullying Prevention Society” is about to be born.
Messages from the supporters of the establishment (partial excerpt) Now that the Children’s Fundamental Law has been enacted, isn’t it time to gather wisdom and exert all of our strength toward building a new era for children? I sincerely hope that this conference will become a forum for comprehensive and interdisciplinary discussion and research on bullying prevention, rooted in scientific evidence and multidisciplinary practice. (Naoki Ogi / Educational critic, Hosei University professor emeritus)
I welcome the establishment of the Child Bullying Prevention Society. Bullying continues to escalate and lead to suicide. Who are the bullies in the modern world? I would like to have a lot of discussion in the academic society. (Mr. Akihito Kita / Professor Emeritus, Waseda University)
