POG: Understanding the process of online grooming: the behaviours of men who target young people online

European Online Grooming Project: Sexual offenders use of the internet

The European Online Grooming Project is the first European research project that will study the characteristics, behaviour and motivations of sexual offenders who have used the internet to groom young people. Researchers will conduct a scoping study that will review online groomers case files, provide a report of the research and policy literature from each partner country, and interview strategic stakeholders concerned with the management and prevention of online grooming. 

The main phase of the research will involve in-depth interviews with online groomers in the UK, Italy, Belgium and Norway. The final phase of the research encompasses dissemination events to policy makers, professionals, teachers, parents and young people. 6 partners from 4 different European countries are working together on this project.
