Describe your workshop/presentation (300-500 words): 
Lovers’ murder cases have been on the rise in Taiwanese news. Understanding the cause and consequences of these incidents, we have found that there have always been traces of stalking and harassment involved. Unfortunately, there is currently no regulations against stalking and harassment and hence the reoccurrence of the misfortunate cases. According to a survey conducted by our organization, 12.4% of young girls claimed they have experienced stalking harassment, meaning one in every 8 girls have such experience. The format of stalking most frequently experienced (77.3%) is via communication applications, such as phone calls, text messages, and via the internet, or by stalking their daily activities.

In our online survey last year, 1 in every 5 young students have been stalked via technology, and thus its necessity for legislation. This workshop will be split into three sections. The first forty minutes would be a speech by Professor Wang Pei Ling from the National Chi Nan University Department of Social Policy and Social Work Department. She will speak about the development and prospects of the anti-stalking harassment advocacy work from the needs of the victims, research, legislation and the future. The second 40 minutes: a representative from MWF collaborating with national and international experts in research, will introduce professional assessors and tools required to build a professional network.
A. For professionals: SHARP online assessment tools, related professional workshop
B. Victims: establish the first national stalking harassment hotline to serve the victims.
C. The 2018 trend research: focusing on the analysis of the result of the 2700 Taiwanese high school students online survey on stalking harassment
D. Public Advocacy and Social marketing: creative activities, virtual gaming, screen a 3-minute animation.
E. Legislation action: the third reading for stalking and harassment, Q&A interactive discussion for 10 minutes
