Organizational Culture and Bullying Project

This project aims to investigate organizational culture in Bangladesh and Australia (see also cross national restorative justice research project). In particular, it seeks to understand the effectiveness of restorative justice principles in organizations like families, schools and workplaces that can bring justice and peace in people's lives. Key ideas that are being investigated in response to wrongdoing (such as school bullying, workplace bullying) are:

  • Processes of regulation (eg. shaming, forgiveness and reconciliation)
  • Management of shame (eg. shame acknowledgment, shame displacement)
  • Management of pride (humble pride and narcissistic pride)
  • Organizational connectedness
  • Organisational justice (eg. procedural justice, interactional justice)
