Abuse in Religious Settings



Partners and collaborators

University of Alabama (USA), University of Auckland (NZ), Trinity College (Auckland, NZ), University of Otago (Dunedin, NZ), Kyambogo University (Uganda), NGOs and charities working with survivors of abuse


This is the first project of its kind to undertake a major inter-disciplinary study of institutional, policy, professional and individual issues in relation to abuse across a wide range of religious traditions.

It explores distinctive aspects of the experience and effects of abuse in this context - as well as processes of repair, restitution and recovery - using survivor experiences and insights as the basis of investigation.
