All over Europe, newspaper articles and TV programmes increasingly report on sometimes dramatic cases of workplace bullying. Unlike everyday conflicts at work, bullying is a long-lasting conflict where one person is systematically harassed by one or more colleagues or supervisors, resulting in severe damage to the victim's psychological and physical health. Research on workplace bullying started more than a decade ago but has increased during the last few years. This special issue on workplace bullying documents the most recent developments in research and practice in various European countries, and includes topics such as the role of personality in becoming a victim, bullying and the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), conflict escalation and coping with bullying and the impact of organizational status on bullying behaviour.
