Main Article Content

Abstract

Child bullying is a worldwide issue and able to cause both victims and bullies the short - term and long - term effects. In Thailand, there were only a few legal studies about child bullying. This article reviewed tort liability and remedies in relation to child bullying by analyzing and comparing legal application and interpretation on child bullying among Thailand, United State of America, Japan, and Germany. The study revealed that Thailand did not have child anti-bullying law. Tort liability needed to be individually examined depending on fact, hence, some bullying act might not be a tort. The bullies might not be in responsible for bullying consequences especially the suicide of victim. Furthermore, tort law remedies alone might not be sufficient for the parties, therefore, Child Protection Act 2003 might be the key to mitigating the injuries of involved children.
