International (cyber)stalking: Impediments to investigation and prosecution

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


The investigation and prosecution of international (cyber)stalking suffers from impediments that are absent when national and/or offline stalking is concerned. This contribution aims to enumerate some of the most pressing issues and to look for possible solutions. To this end, stalking legislation in the united states will be compared to that of the european member states; issues of jurisdiction, extradition and international legal assistance will be touched upon; and the council of europe convention on cybercrime will be analyzed to see if it can serve a purpose in the combat against international (cyber)stalking.keywordspenal codechild pornographylegal assistancepraeger publishereuropean member statethese keywords were added by machine and not by the authors.
