Description

Co-Guest editor with three other academics from universities in the Netherlands, Finland and the UK.

This will be a special edition on the topic of child sexual abuse.

"Child sexual abuse (CSA) is a global public health problem impacting children across all socio-economic and ethnocultural strata. Understanding all the components that are directly or indirectly implicated in CSA is a complex endeavor. The causes, consequences and underlying mechanisms supporting CSA are diverse and have a profound impact on the individual, the family, and the community. Furthermore, early identification of child victims and the investigation of alleged child sexual abuse are complex and improvements to current practices are necessary. Although there is a growing body of literature on this subject, more research is needed to understand all the components that are directly or indirectly implicated in CSA and how it has varied across contexts."
