Deadline: 25 May 2020
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is seeking applications for research projects to establish the degree to which law enforcement practices for preventing and responding to the sex trafficking of minors have changed since the adoption of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000.
NIJ is specifically interested in understanding how widely law enforcement agencies have adopted practices that are based on the perspective that the minor is a victim as opposed to a delinquent, and the challenges that agencies have faced in adopting such practices. Applications that do not propose to address these two topical areas will not be considered.
The goal of this solicitation is to contribute to the building of a comprehensive and extensive understanding of law enforcement practices to prevent and respond to the sex trafficking of minors. The research should aim to fill gaps in the existing research literature. Additionally, the research should aim to provide an empirical basis upon which to formulate and implement policies and programs to improve law enforcement responses to the sex trafficking of minors in the United States.
