Under their parents’ noses – the online sexual solicitation of young people

ByDavid Shannon

David has been working as a researcher at the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention for four years. Prior to taking up his current position, he worked as Director of Studies for the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes at Stockholm University’s Department of Criminology, where he was also involved in researching different aspects of youth crime. Since moving to the National Council, David’s research focus has become more varied, and besides researching sexual offences against children, he has also participated in projects focused on discrimination in the criminal justice system and violence in schools. His work continues to involve researching and writing about youth crime, responses to youth crime and youth victimisation more generally.
