Understanding Child Sexual and Criminal Exploitation within the  Context  of Organised Criminal Networks: Attending to the Motivations and Modus Operandi of Perpetrators

Participants are required for a research project exploring the motivations and modus operandi of child sexual and criminal exploitation network-based perpetrators; including group dynamics. As well as obtaining views on disruption strategies.

The project is looking to recruit those who work as operational staff working within the field of child sexual or criminal exploitation targeting (for a minimum of 2 years) or academics with specialisms in child sexual or criminal exploitation (who have published a minimum of 2 peer-reviewed articles in an academic journal).

The research also requires participants to currently hold their role, as the survey will ask questions on present experience.

If you meet this criterion and wish to take part, you will be required to complete a survey comprising of five questionnaires, which should take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. For further information and to access the survey, please click on the link below.
