The Institutionalised Abuse of Children in Australia: Past and Present.
Hawkins, Russell M. F.; Briggs, Freda
Early Child Development and Care, v133 p41-55 Jun 1997
Uses examples of institutional child abuse within the Australian police force, social service departments, diplomatic service, schools, the judicial system, and the church to show that leadership may mitigate or amplify abuse. Contends that the precedence of adults' rights over children's rights contributes to child abuse. The recent creation of a Commissioner for Children may help rectify this imbalance. (Author/KB)
