Accomplished Education Researcher Seminar Series : Considering agency alongside structure in current considerations on child abuse in Catholic educational institutions: historical perspectives Other events...
In 2013 a six-member Royal Commission was established in Australia to investigate Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. This is the latest in a large number of such commissions that have been established around the world in recent years. It is clear that it will report many cases of abuse in various educational institutions, many run by the Catholic Church. And yet, like all such reports, I suspect it will quite understandably concentrate on agency rather than structure. In other words, while it will seek to document the situation and, quite correctly, lay blame where it needs to be laid, it may not make us any wiser in terms of trying to understand how the abuse could have taken place. Adopting the perspective of the educational historian, I wish to suggest one of many avenues that could be taken in investigations aimed at trying to generate such understanding, specifically in the case of institutions run by the Catholic Church, while recognising that the matter also needs to be addressed in the case of other churches, and for other non-state and state-run institutions.
