NIJ seeks proposals for research on the violent victimization experiences of racial and ethnic minorities. NIJ's goal is to advance the body of research on this topic by examining the causes and correlates of differential victimization rates among these diverse populations, including demographic and socioeconomic risk factors. The research should take into account the argument that there is no single cause of violent victimization. Rather, it should consider multiple risk factors that contribute to racial/ethnic minorities- victimization, including individual, situational, family, school, peer, and community factors.
