National & Global Organizations



The National Research Consortium on Commercial Sexual Exploitation (NRC-CSE) has identified three organizational pillars that, individually and collectively, are designed to advance the work of the Consortium:  Policy, Education, and Service.  Research by the NRC-CSE covers domestic and international issues, and is typically interdisciplinary and multi-methodological, conjointly utilizing systematic research synthesis and rigorous qualitative and quantitative analytical tools.

From working with government leaders to protect victims’ rights, to building partnerships with the world’s leading technology corporations, we spark long-term change that focuses communities on identifying, reporting and eliminating trafficking networks...." Our comprehensive model puts victims at the center of all that we do -- helping survivors restore their freedom, preventing more victims, and gathering the data to pursue traffickers wherever they operate."
