Conference Details

In the light of the continued uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 situation we are closely following the development.
The safety and well-being of the conference participants is our priority. We have decided to enable online participation  (and the workshop will not be postponed or canceled even if on-site participation was impossible).
The up-to-date information about travel restrictions and practices to Finland are available at:


The 25th Workshop on Aggression will take place on 4th-6th November, 2021 in Turku, Finland, with the overarching theme “Prevention of aggression and violence among and against youth”. Due to the ongoing pandemic situation we are fully prepared to move the conference online if needed. Currently, Workshop on Aggression 2021 is being planned as a live conference.

We welcome researchers studying bullying, dating violence, online abuse and grooming, child maltreatment, and other types of aggression, and evidence-based prevention of these global challenges.

The conference is set to follow the World Anti-Bullying Forum, which will be held November 1st to 3rd, 2021, allowing for a comfortable transition to those wanting to attend both.

Registration is open!

Due to Covid-19 Workshop on Aggression 2021 has a possibility for online participation. The price for online participation is the same as for participation in Turku.
