Discrimination and Bullying

ByDuncan Lewis, Sabir Giga, Helge Hoel

While other chapters have debated and explored boundaries and questions around bullying, its antecedents, and its precedents, this chapter discusses how bullying and discrimination can be so readily colocated. Our position on why these two concepts are linked needs to be made clear at the outset. If we consider organisations as a microcosm of society, then it is our belief that many of the economic, social, political, historical, and global issues affecting intergroup relationships and experiences of discrimination outside work are just as likely to have an impact on experiences in work.
