/About us

The Child Sexual Abuse Reduction Research Network was established in 2023 by a group of researchers committed to combatting child sexual abuse (CSA). The network's mission is to bring together scholars, practitioners, government agencies, and private and not-for-profit organizations from around the world to develop new and interdisciplinary approaches to addressing this pernicious crime type. Topics addressed include identifying factors associated with offending, developing forensic tools aimed at improving investigatory practices, promoting interventions orientated about reducing victimization, and exploring new ways to support victims.
