Current State of Knowledge about Stalking and Gender-Based Violence: The Known, Unknown, and Yet To Be Known

Nearly one in six of women experience stalking victimization at some point during their life, and most are stalked by someone who they know—typically current or former intimate partners. Given the escalation of violence and potential harm that an individual may commit while stalking someone, it is important to bring more attention to this issue. This brown-bag session highlights a panel of scholars to share what the field currently knows about stalking behaviors and victims, including a focus on intimate partner violence, non-partner relationships, and police response. In addition, panelists will share knowledge from current applications of stalking research and interventions. A moderated Q&A session will follow presentations.
