In the UK, there is no existing framework to monitor serial stalkers and domestic violence perpetrators.

Police rely on victims to report such crimes, and connections to an offender’s history of prior incidents is often lost.

Anti-stalking charity Paladin is calling on the UK government to introduce a Stalkers Register to protect victims of domestic abuse and stalking. Under these proposals, serial stalkers and domestic abusers would be tracked, managed, and monitored by police. Police would also be obliged to identify people that they believe to be at risk of serious harm from them, such as a new partner, and warn that person of their history of offending.

There have been 381 reported cases of stalking and domestic violence between 2015 to 2018. 51 percent of the alleged perpetrators subsequently continued their studies at the same university.

Only 13 percent of universities surveyed mention stalking or domestic abuse in official documents, such as their anti-bullying policies or their student code of conduct.

We sent Freedom of Information (FOI) requests to all UK universities asking them to disclose the number of students who have been accused of stalking or domestic abuse—and how many of them subsequently remained at the institution.
