”Stalking, harassments and threats – Do Swedish laws stop the stalker?”

Guest Resercher Ramunė Jakštienė, Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania

“Criminalization of Stalking in Lithuania: Progress and Challenges”


Stalking is one of the most prevalent and harmful forms of violence against women. It is a multifaceted tactic involving typical violent behaviors. Because of the complex format, the criminal law response to it is complicated. Despite EU-wide legislation initiatives, criminalization and prosecution of stalking is still a hot topic. So, we invite you to contribute to this debate and discuss the Swedish legislation of stalking, harassments and threats and the case of Lithuania.
