In light of extensive studies on workplace bullying and harassment, everyone agrees that they are unacceptable, having disastrous consequences on the target’s health, and a negative impact on company performance. However, bullying persists even in countries which have specific laws against it. If companies are willing to acknowledge work stress, they are still reluctant to recognize bullying, they still view it as a subjective problem.

At the same time, the situation has become more complex. Bullying is an interpersonal issue, but it is affected by the organisational culture and the work climate. In a period of economic crisis, when some work organizations are primarily focused on financial performance, they can also indulge in bullying, claiming that it is necessary in the context. This lack of clarity regarding what constitutes unacceptable workplace behaviour is a fertile environment for “institutional bullying”. Even if bullying is a risk among other sufferings in the workplace, the particular nature of bullying differentiates it from other psycho social risks. This leads us to re-examine the boundaries between bullying strictly speaking and tough management.

The aim of the 11th IAWBH congress is to further explore the complexity of the bullying phenomenon, to understand the transformation of workplace (new forms of work, new organizations, new environment), taking into account the increase of insecurity and violence in modern society.

We are delighted to invite you to join us for the 11th IAWBH conference in Bordeaux. A beautiful city at two hours from Paris with a new high-speed train. A city that contains more preserved historical buildings than any city in France aside from Paris and surrounded by the most famed wine region in the world. Bordeaux is on the rise, with a metropolitan population over one million, several respected universities injecting talented young graduates into the community and the recently opened wonderful “Cité du Vin” wine museum. If you wish, the additional activities suggested will allow you to discover this rich heritage.
