Developing better informed child protection measures depends on the availability of sound research into child sexual abuse. However due to a lack of funding available to researchers, the stigma associated with this topic, and the difficulty of finding willing research subjects, much work in this area remains to be done. Prostasia works with experts to raise funding for new independent research on neglected topics, and to clearly and concisely communicate the results of that research to policymakers, platforms, and the public.
Promoting existing research
If you have research findings that policymakers should know about, we can help you to reach out to them. This could include collaborating on communications, op-eds, letters to policymakers, introducing your research to relevant working groups and industry fora, and including your research in our blog and newsletter.
Community liaison service
We also offer a community liaison service, leveraging our connections and trusted relationships with our stakeholder communities, to help you to attract a diverse panel of research subjects and collaborators. Please enquire about building a community liaison role for Prostasia into your next research project.
Facilitating new research
If you are a researcher with an existing proposal for which you are seeking funding, connect with us to let us know how we can help. Note that currently we only have the capacity to assist with proposals that are already co-funded.
Current calls for research proposals
Prostasia also periodically independently calls for research proposals in which qualified researchers are invited to participate. Current calls for proposals are listed below.
