Project Title:

Understanding and Responding to Victims of Stalking

Project Description:

Stalking is an under-researched phenomenon with policy and practice in the UK heavily reliant on media coverage of high-profile cases. Parliamentary debate has highlighted the lack of support available for victims. This study will aim to enhance public and professional understanding and inform the service response by exploring some key questions including: stalking’s relationship with domestic abuse, perpetrators’ histories and profiles, impacts on victims, their children and the wider family, implications for the workplace and identifying key features of criminal justice and advocacy responses to stalking.

The student and the supervisory team will benefit from a partnership with Paladin National Stalking Advocacy Service based in East Lancashire.
