Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to explore how schoolchildren themselves explain why bullying takes place at school. Individual qualitative interviews were conducted with 56 schoolchildren, recruited from five elementary schools in Sweden. Grounded theory methods were used to analyse data. According to the findings, the schoolchildren appear to use at least seven constructions of bullying causes to explain bullying.
