Abstract: School violence and bullying highlighted as a global issue outside and in the school. In this research, IEA International Civic and Citizenship Study (ICCS) 2016 data from eight countries – Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia), the Russian Federation, Sweden and Denmark – was compared. The aim of the article is to observe the relationship between bullying and students’ citizenship activities at school and in the future. The research determined a relationship between bullying and factors that described students’ citizenship activities. The results show that there is a link between bullying and students’ experiences of participation in illegal and legal activities, participation in classroom discussions, interest in the wider community, and at-school citizenship activities.
