Research team consisting of Affiliate Jennifer Elkins, Fellows Steve Kogan & Jody Clay-Warner, former GDP David Okech, and Dr. Pippim were awarded the President’s Interdisciplinary Seed Grant (PISG) to conduct research on Community-based Participatory Research to Reintegrate Female Victims of Trafficking West Africa. Their research aim is to design and test evidence-informed intervention and reintegration programs for female victims of trafficking worldwide. Their collaborators in Ghana include the University of Ghana, Lifeline-a residential facility for female victims of trafficking as well as a local key informant who is a link between the team and the Government of Ghana. The PISG will enable them to conduct 150 quantitative interviews with trafficking survivors and 50 qualitative interviews with key informants. The interviews will be conducted this summer (2017).
