Jonathan Cohen and Dorothy L. Espelage, two leading authorities in the fields of school climate and prevention science, have gathered experts from around the globe to highlight policy and practice recommendations for supporting children and adolescents to feel and be safe in school.


This important book includes historically contextualized chapters and important commentaries by highly regarded international experts on climate and safety to identify common opportunities and challenges. It will be an essential resource for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers who are interested in creating safe, supportive schools that promote student success and well being. — David Osher, vice president and institute fellow, American Institutes for Research

Cohen and Espelage offer a thought-provoking world tour of school safety policies. The book charts national efforts in eleven countries to conceptualize key concepts such as school climate, bullying, and harassment that are needed to transform schools into safer and more inclusive environments for learning. Analysis of the similarities and differences across countries provides an illuminating and inspiring cross-cultural perspective. — Dewey Cornell, professor of education and director of Virginia Youth Violence Project, University of Virginia
