Abstract This article reviews the three main challenges in research in the field of moral harassment, namely to better understand the complexity of the processes at play in situations of moral harassment, to better identify the role of outside players such as the group of colleagues or hierarchical superiors and, finally, to better understand the link between conflict and harassment. To explore these aspects, interviews were conducted with 50 individuals who viewed themselves to be victims of moral harassment. The analysis shows different profiles of victims. Findings are discussed.
