NIJ International Center Hopes to Link U.S. and Non-U.S. Researchers

Harry Dammer, University of Scranton

ABSTRACT
This poster session is of special interest to those who conduct comparative/international crime and justice research. Although the growth of crime and justice research on the international, national and private levels in recent years is encouraging, there is still a tremendous source of additional research that has to this point been largely untapped. That untapped source is collaborative research between private and academic researchers from different countries. This source has been largely untapped because at this time no formal mechanism exists that allows individual researchers to locate, and then develop working relationships with, those of similar research interests. To address this issue, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) International Center has funded a project to determine the best strategy to link U.S. and non-U.S. researchers on particular topics of interest in crime and criminal justice. Members of the ASC International Section are invited to participate. This poster session will introduce this project and invite ASC conference attendees to participate. For more information at the ASC Conference in Denver see Harry Dammer or see www.crjinterlink.org.
