I haven't seen any publication discussing Stockholm Syndrome in relation to stalking, but I have seen the syndrome discussed in relation to domestic violence. I reproduce below the criteria for occurrence in cases of domestic violence
- The victim perceives a person threatening her
survival. The threats may be physical or psychological.
It is not important whether others
view her survival as threatened, but rather
whether she does.
- The victim perceives the abuser showing her
some kindness, however small. For example,
the kindness may be that for one day out of
the month he does not abuse her.
- The victim is isolated from outsiders. This isolation
may be physical—she is not permitted to
have contact with family or friends—and/or
ideological—she is permitted exposure to
only the abuser’s perspective.
- The victim does not perceive a way to escape
the abuser. Batterers use violence to help ensure
that their partners do not leave them.
In my opinion, it could also happen in cases of stalking... however criterion 3 (victim isolation) seems much less likely to happen in cases of stalking. However, stalking is known to increase the social isolation of the victim in some circumstances (altering her/his pattern of social interaction to avoid the stalker), so stalking could potentially lead to 3... but again, I'm just theorizing off the top of my head.
