The chapter compares bullying experiences among university students between four countries and aims to provide an understanding of the cultural features which might affect these experiences.

We continue discussing the ways in which the current cultural, political, historical and economic status and challenges in each country might explain the cross-cultural differences and similarities detected in students’ bullying experiences in higher education.
