The fifth Alice Ruggles Trust conference will be held on

Thursday, 26 October 2023

The theme of this year’s conference will be

Tackling adolescent stalking and relationship abuse


Timed to coincide with the publication of a new textbook “Young People, Stalking Awareness and Domestic Abuse”, which has been produced in partnership with the Alice Ruggles Trust, this year’s conference will feature a number of speakers who have contributed to the book, reports from current research projects relating to adolescent stalking, and workshops on subjects including cyberstalking and honour-based violence. There will also be contributions on tackling stalking in the military and proposed new sentencing guidelines for murder following a history of domestic abuse.

As ever, our aim is to bring together practitioners and academics to promote dialogue and cooperation that will improve strategies for protecting stalking victims and managing perpetrators. The conference will be of interest to criminal justice, health service and third sector professionals as well as academic criminologists and psychologists. This year, we are especially keen to encourage the attendance of safeguarding professionals from a wide range of services.

As in 2022, the conference will be a hybrid, both in person at College Court conference centre, University of Leicester, and on-line.


In partnership with the Department of Criminology at the University of Leicester
