My paper approaches the issue of bullying from a new perspective. Scholarly literature usually examines this problem by the side of freedom of expression. My attention towards the discrimination-aspect of this topic was grabbed by a research from North-Carolina, where „bias-based bullying” was studied. Its result highlighted the significant presence of bullying, based on protected characteristics. Thanks to this, as a first step of my research, I reviewed the Hungarian and the international academic literature in order to disclose the notional background of bullying and cyberbullying. My aim was to establish the relation between discrimination and bullying, for that, it was indispensable to clarify the fundamental notions of bullying and cyberbullying. In parallel, the subject of my examination was the Hungarian public educational and discriminatory system of institutions, with special regard to the work of the Office of the Commissioner for Educational Rights and the Equal Treatment Authority. My goal was to find out whether the Hungarian system of institutions possess a specific organization that can act on its own authority and also guarantee effective protection for the victims of bullying. In 2011, the domestic presence of the problem was also confirmed by the research Tabby in Internet, however, the concerning legislative steps have not happened yet ever since. The prohibition of discrimination and the requirement of equal treatment is a general principle interfering all of our legal system and its predominance is a matter of governmental obligation. As a research question, I was thinking whether it is possible to build a relationship between bullying, based on protected traits and the domestic discriminatory system of institutions that provides protection against bullying and cyberbullying. My paper gives an alternative solution to this in the de lege ferenda proposal, that gives a textual suggestion to the modification of the law of equal treatment and the advancement of equal opportunity. This law amendment would make it possible for students in public education to turn to ETA in cases of bullying, moreover, in harmony with valid procedural law, the cases would reach the procedure of Constitutional Court. Thanks to this, even the Constitutional Court’s interpretation of domestic bullying and cyberbullying research would be accessible.
