NIJ seeks proposals for funding for research related to adult offender decision-making with respect to crime. NIJ is particularly interested in research to extend the rational choice models or expand into other theories and models (e.g., behavioral economics, business models, or cognitive models) in order to advance our understanding of adult offenders’ decision-making process. Proposed research also should consider issues such as social context, emotions, default choices, or possibly environmental context to help the field gain a better understanding of the overall decision-making process.​
