There is very little research on kidnapping and no reliable datasets. Hostage US gathers together research, statistics and other information on our website to make it easier for those interested in kidnapping to share and access the limited information that is available.
If you are conducting research on kidnapping or come across useful data or articles that you would like to share, please send it to Hostage US and – subject to review – we will share it on our website to help others to access it.
