This chapter is one of three that draws on the first extensive research of child sexual abuse (CSA) to be carried out in the Caribbean. The report of the study - Perceptions of, Attitudes to and Opinions on Child Sexual Abuse in the Eastern Caribbean, hereafter referred to as ‘the Study’(Jones and Trotman Jemmott, 2009)1 is available on the UNICEF (Barbados) website. The chapter discusses the context in which the Study was situated, describes the methodology and summarises key findings. Chapter 10 will deconstruct narratives of survivors to explore the complex layers of abuse and Chapter 11 describes a knowledge transfer project that seeks to translate the research findings into interventions and models of good practice.
