University of Queensland Student Research

Body

The ACCCE is proud to partner with the University of Queensland Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice Honours program. Each year, two Honours students from this program work with the ACCCE to release and showcase research into online child abuse material offenders.

The research helps detail the implications and recommendations that law enforcement and Government could adopt or further investigate, and inform the prevention initiatives that the ACCCE undertakes.
