This report builds on existing research in the field of school violence with a focus on its economic effects on victims, schools, communities and governments as well as the economy as a whole. The study allows for an economic perspective that complements human rights approaches while recognising that the rationale behind school violence prevention is fundamentally the right of children to be safe at school, independently of the cost of this.
