Researchers at ABC were the first in Ireland to undertake research on school bullying, workplace bullying, homophobic bullying and cyberbullying. ABC leads the field of research, resource development and training in bullying in Ireland and is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in bullying research.

Our team work in a collaborative environment in which they study the multi-factored causes of the problem of bullying and translate our findings into resources and training to tackle bullying.

EduDivers (in English “Edu-Diverse”) is the sister organization of GALE in The Netherlands and a Dutch expertise center on sexual diversity in education. Edu-Diverse coaches principals, trains teachers and peer-education volunteers, and develop curricula and methods for inclusive whole school development with the aim to create more inclusivity, respect for diversity, inclusive sexual education and student empowerment. After having focused for 20 years on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, Edu-Diverse is now (2018) making a shift towards a broader perspective on diversity skills in schools. The key focus in this new approach is how students (and teachers) can learn how to deal with the basic fear of anything that seems to be different and possibly threatening.

Transgender Netwerk Nederland (TNN) is an advocacy group for transgender people. We actively participate in the political discussions and give guidance to policy makers. As a result, transgender people are becoming increasingly visible to civil society organizations and the government. Through its activities TNN aims to empower and emancipate transgenders in society at large, work and in schools. We want to help transgender people live a good life, claim their rights and stand up for their own interests.

TNN strives to strengthen the links between transgender people and with organizations that support transgender emancipation. Thereby we want to increase the visibility of transgender people in Dutch society. We do this by working together with strategic partners, promoting initiatives and making ourselves heard in the media and towards policy makers.
