El presente estudio tuvo como objetivo analizar la prevalencia de diferentes problemas de convivencia y violencia escolar en una muestra total de 1.629 alumnos/as de España, Austria, Francia y Hungría. Asimismo, se tuvo en consideración la afectación personal. Los resultados obtenidos señalan una elevada prevalencia de distintas conductas de acoso escolar (como insultos, peleas, inexistencia de normas de convivencia, etc.) en Austria, Francia y España, siendo significativamente inferior en Hungría. En cuanto a la afectación personal, los alumnos consideran muy acuciantes, junto con las conductas de abuso entre los alumnos, la desmotivación y dificultades de relación con el profesorado.

Assessment of school violence and its personal effect on a sample of European students. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the prevalence of various problems of living together and school violence in a sample of 1629 pupils of Spain, Austria, France, and Hungary. The personal effect of these problems was also analyzed. The results obtained indicate a high prevalence of various school harassment behaviors (such as insults, fights, lack of rules for living together, etc.) in Austria, France, and Spain, being significantly lower in Hungary. As far as the personal effect, along with abusive behaviors among students, the students consider lack of motivation and troubled relations with teaching staff to be very significant.
