APRIES: Call for Proposals: Research Innovation in Estimating the Prevalence of Human Trafficking

The African Programming and Research Initiative to End Slavery (APRIES) at the University of Georgia is pleased to announce a funding opportunity available through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of State, Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (J/TIP) with the following two aims:

  1. To document the robustness of various methodological approaches in human trafficking prevalence research;
  2. To identify and build the capacity of human trafficking teams in the design, testing, and dissemination of human trafficking prevalence data.

To achieve these aims, APRIES is seeking strong research teams to apply at least two methods of estimating human trafficking prevalence in a selected hot spot and sector outside the US. Prior to data collection, successful applicants will participate in an initial conference and training in Washington, D.C. on the methods of estimating human trafficking prevalence. Applications from research teams who have strong in-country collaborations and who have experience in using existing and promising methods are encouraged to apply for this unique opportunity.

Deadline: March 4, 2020 by 5:00 p.m. EST
