Calling all professionals and practitioners who work with victims of stalking; employer organisations; HR and staff care professionals; academics, researchers; students and policymakers.
Please find attached below the poster to Save the Date for the first-ever International Conference & Summit on Stalking. This is organised by Action Against Stalking and the University of the West of Scotland to launch their ground-breaking Centre for Action Against Stalking, the International centre against abusive and harmful behaviours.
1 in 6 people can experience stalking in a 12-month period. It can affect people of any age, ethnicity, and gender. Victims can suffer mental and physical ill-health, have their personal and working life destroyed. Stalking may escalate to physical assault, sexual assault, and/or even murder.
Forms of stalking include rape/sexual exploitation, domestic/child abuse, racial/hate crimes, harassment, bullying. Cyber-stalking is rapidly increasing, exacerbated by Covid restrictions.
