Italy: Campaign against cyberbullying

In Italy, the Ministry of Education has launched a specific campaign to address cyberbullying, creating a permanent observatory for every region of Italy and publishing educational materials (text and multimedia) on a specific website.

Part of this plan was the establishment of a national emergency number with a task force composed by experts able to provide the first help in case of cyberbullying.

In this campaign an important role was assigned to specific rehabilitation measures, trying to keep the perpetrator and his or her family aware of the consequences of his or her actions. Recently, Italy approved a specific law to combat cyberbullying, and thus further initiatives are expected in the forthcoming months.
