Comment lutter contre la violence et le harcèlement à l'école et au collège ? : Enseignements d'une expérimentation à grande échelle

Abstract : Peer violence in schools is a worrying phenomenon, especially the potential longterm impact it may have on a child’s future. Here we evaluate the effects of a program of social mediation at school implemented to reduce peer violence. Through a randomized experimental design, we show that the effects of the program are very important when it is implemented by mediators who are over 25 years old: in junior high school, the rate of experienced harassment is reduced by 11%. Specifically, the program is extremely beneficial for students most exposed to violence: the probability of feeling harassed decreased by 46% in boys in 6th grade and by 26% in girls in 7th grade. Interesting effects on the psychological and social well­being of students, as well as on student absenteeism and teachers are also visible.
