 How to End Child Sexual Abuse in the Catholic Church

Image1

Description

In this free public lecture, visiting Macgeorge Fellow Professor Nancy Scheper-Hughes explores how we can end the history of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.

Never one to shy away from controversy, her talk will be based on three decades of studying and intervening in the global 'traffic in children' for sexual gratification by Catholic priests, bishops and cardinals. Drawing on memoir, ethnography, Church history, Canon Law, and political theology, Professor Scheper-Hughes will explain the foundational causes, ugly consequences, and missed opportunities by the Vatican to end the clerical sexual abuse of children once and for all.

The School's own Dr Dave McDonald, a criminologist whose research explores institutional child sex abuse and the related Royal Commission, will act as a discussant and offer a local perspective.

This event is supported by the Macgeorge Bequest.
