Stalking e bullismo nell’era dei social network

Di Paola Grimaldi -

Stalking has become part of our penal system with the decree no. 11/2009 which introduced in the art. 612 bis c.p. the crime of persecutory acts whose notion, over time, has been made ever wider, including mobbing and bullying. Stalking plays a role of undoubted importance also between the measures to combat violence against women and from stalking to femicide the step can be really short if there is no complaint and if nothing is done immediately. The phenomena of stalking and bullying call for particular attention when they are perpetrated through the use of new technologies or related tools, integrating the respective crimes of cyberstalking and cyberbullying.
