Abstract

Originally explored as a mere academic concept, mobbing has of late gate-crashed the research and scholarly party to stake a bigger claim for attention on the part of academicians, scholars and researchers alike. The enabling factor in this case has been the discovery of the various elements and forms attached to mobbing hitherto a distant thought. Along with this, the prevalence of the crime within scores and a multitude of organizations as evidenced by the effects of mobbing on the victims and the productivity of organizations cannot be neglected anymore. While the conventional view born of the definition, types, effects and plausible solutions to mobbing is no longer a point of contention, there is no gain saying that mobbing poses an inextricable challenge when examined within the realm of legal frameworks. Even more crucially, when chaos and complexity theory is infused into the equation, mobbing turns out to be an ultimate threat. This paper, therefore, has examined mobbing from the conventional stand as well as engaging its applicability to legal structures while attempting an exploration of its implication for chaos and complexity theory. Effort was also made to dissect the place of mobbing in educational organizations while paying particular attention to its influence on school leadership.
