Abstract

This conceptual paper examines several intersections between technology and the problem of stalking. In addition to reviewing and analyzing relevant research and policies, the paper draws on the author's experiences as a researcher and social work practitioner specializing in stalking intervention. Its primary focus is on the "double-edged sword" aspects of this problem, where technology is recognized as a useful tool for both stalkers and those trying to stop the stalking.
