Reporting on abuse in care (2022)
Advice for journalists working on stories about survivors of physical, sexual and emotional abuse and their whānau. Research suggests that moments such as the Royal Commission on Abuse in Care can be catalysts for significant change in how society responds to abuse, because they change the way we talk. Journalism is central to that. The advice is based on research done at the University of Canterbury and on other professional and academic work.
