  • consequences in the form of mental and/or physical harm, humiliation, fear, anxiety, subordination of the victim to the interests of the offender, and/or causing social isolation of the victim.

All this is worth knowing for teachers and students of our university. Therefore, on May 21, 2021, as part of the celebration of Science Day in Ukraine, students majoring in 071 Accounting and Taxation and 072 Finance, Banking and Insurance joined a lecture given by Kateryna, Candidate of Law, Lecturer at the Department of Criminology and Criminal Executive Law, Yaroslav the Wise National University.

In particular, during the lecture, the essence of bullying, its forms, typical signs, factors contributing to bullying (personal, family, social, environment), and ways to prevent bullying were considered.

We believe that such lectures will be useful for all students of our university.
