Actions and Detail Panel
Identifying, understanding and responding to child sex offending
Thu. 16 March 2017, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEST
Sexual violence, particularly against children, continues to have profound impacts on community wellbeing, and is a key area of community concern.
This seminar, hosted by the Crime and Justice Research Centre (QUT), brings together four scholars whose research sheds light on ways in which the identification and understanding of, and response to, child sex offending might be improved to better address this important issue.
The seminar will include the following presentations:
- "The politics of sex offender reintegration, risk management and community engagement" - Associate Professor Kieran McCartan, University of the West of England;
- "Dark Networks and the Catholic Church" – Dr Jodi Death, CJRC;
- "Public perceptions of the causes of pedophilia and child sex offending" – Dr Kelly Richards, CJRC;
- "Desistance from Sexual Offending: Life Narratives of Relapse and Resilience" – Dr Danielle Arlanda Harris, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Griffith University.
