Research and Evaluation on Transnational Issues: Trafficking in Persons, Organized Crime, and Violent Extremism
NIJ seeks research and evaluation applications on the phenomenon of transnational crime issues. Transnational crime issues leverage geopolitical changes, globalization, and the information technology revolution to transcend sovereign borders and impact numerous countries simultaneously. This research will supplement work already underway at NIJ on three separate topics—trafficking in persons, transnational organized crime, and radicalization to violent extremism. The goal of this solicitation is to provide the information and evidence-based practices that State, local, and tribal criminal justice agencies need to secure their communities against transnational crimes.
