ReDirection Project: Final Report 2020-2022
The aim of Protect Children’s ReDirection project is to produce new research and information on online crimes of sexual violence against children and to develop the ReDirection Self-Help Program for individuals who search for, view, and distribute images and footage that depict sexual violence against children (child sexual abuse material, CSAM).

ReDirection Project Extension
Protect Children's ReDirection Project has been extended and will continue for an extra year until September 2023. During this extension, we aim to develop the ReDirection Self-Help Program for reducing CSAM use, and continue research on the dataset collected from surveys of CSAM users in the dark web. The new information gathered will help to inform future child protection efforts and strengthen offender-focused prevention of crimes of sexual violence against children.
