Dr. Karen Shalev Greene, Director of CSMP:
"There is a small but growing body of research into missing persons, and a great deal of potential for new research to fill the gaps in existing knowledge. The Centre for the Study of Missing Persons has been created to enhance this knowledge and contribute towards a reduction of the problem. I hope you will register with the CSMP Hub to access hundreds of academic and professional references in a wide variety of topics related to the study of missing persons."
Jo Youle, CEO Missing People:
"The charity Missing People is delighted to be working in partnership with the CSMP. Research is vital for developing understanding of the experiences of missing people and their families, and for identifying gaps in provision. We believe that this partnership will provide insight into what more can be done to safeguard, support and reconnect missing people".
