Web Site, Web Chat on Sexual Violence in Prison

For more information on sexual violence in prisons—including an overview of the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA), current research findings, descriptions of ongoing work by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and other Federal agencies to address prison rape, and links to additional resources — see NIJ's Web page on prison rape.

NIJ, along with the Government Innovators Network at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, sponsored a Web chat on prison sexual violence on February 7, 2008. Web chat participants discussed the status of PREA research, as well as innovative practices to prevent sexual violence in prisons.
