About the Project
Such frameworks may over-simplify the way that the past is constructed and re-constructed and the contexts within which this happens.
Emerging academic work in Canada and parts of Europe begins to problematise the subject. In the UK, child abuse inquiries are currently underway in England and Wales and in Scotland. Co-led by senior academics in social work and law, the aim of this PhD is to examine the workings of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (through, primarily, its recorded documentary findings) and to interrogate the assumptions it makes and the conclusions it draws.
