Research Interests

Office of Sex Trafficking Intervention Research (STIR)

The Office of Sex Trafficking Intervention Research (STIR) is in the School of Social Work, within the College of Public Service and Community Solutions at Arizona State University.  The STIR office, opened in the Spring of 2013, is staffed by academics, researchers and law enforcement community research partners.  

The goal of the STIR office is to be a central source of research on domestic sex trafficking which will inform the decisions made by those who contact victims and perpetrators of sex trafficking including law enforcement and prosecutors, educators, medical services and social services.  

Research disseminated from the STIR office has and will continue to significantly contribute to the knowledge base about sex trafficking by introducing innovative research methodologies and unique partnerships in the development of new knowledge.
