Research Meetings and Workshops

NIJ learns from the people who work day-to-day with the issues. We sponsor meetings, workshops, and working groups that bring together researchers, policymakers, technologists, and practitioners.

These meetings generate a rich exchange of ideas. They guide future research and help ensure that NIJ's research, development and evaluation activities meet real-world needs.

Review the summaries or transcripts available for many of these meetings:

NIJ FY18 Research and Evaluation on Hate Crimes

Closing Date

NIJ is seeking research and evaluation related to hate crime perpetration and victimization. The purpose of this solicitation is to support research and evaluation to: 1) understand the motivations and pathways to hate crime offending; 2) determine whether programs targeted at hate crime offenders are effective at reducing reoffending; 3) determine whether programs that work with victims of hate crimes and their communities are effective at reducing the harms caused by hate crimes; and 4) provide information that will improve investigative and prosecutorial outcomes.

NIJ FY17 Research on Hate Crimes

Closing Date

NIJ is seeking research and evaluation related to bias crime perpetration and victimization. For this solicitation, NIJ is interested in research that 1) explores the characteristics and motivations of offenders, including pathways to bias-motivated criminal behavior; and 2) evaluates interventions with victims of bias crimes or individuals who commit hate crimes. Other proposals that address gaps in our ability to identify, assess, and understand the behavior of bias crime offenders or experiences of bias crime victims will be considered.
