Abstract: Child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church is a multi-layered, multifaceted problem that needs to be understood and addressed in all its complexity. Approaches that focus only on individual actors without taking sufficient account of structural and systemic considerations not alone marginalise individuals but fail in the ultimate aim of prevention, healing and repair.
