The partners have been chosen taking into consideration geographical distribution, expertise and interest in partnership development in order to insure complementary experience in the field. The partnership covers 5 EU Member States (Italy, Spain, UK, Romania and Slovenia). The geographical spread across the EU helps ensure a deep analysis of bullying in different social contexts and the opportunity to test comprehensive solutions. Finally, some of the partners have already successfully collaborated in other projects (Icaro with ANSI; CECE, with NCfLB and ISJP). This is certainly a major strength that will facilitate the coordination and dialogue inside the partnership. Some partners, such as CECE and NCfLB, have a wide range of experience in successful international projects to reduce bullying at schools, including previous experience in Daphne III.
