2015 (English)In: Apologies and the legacy of abuse of children in care :: International Perspectives / [ed] Johanna Sköld, Shurlee Swain, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015, 13-26 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Since the 1990s historical abuse of children in out-of-home care has been the focus of political attention in numerous western countries. This chapter takes on a well-needed historiographical approach outlining processes of inquiries, apologies and reparations that have emerged in Australia, Ireland, UK, Canada, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland. It asks why these processes are occurring here and why now? While such processes arise in response to particular local situations, Sköld demonstrates that they are also shaped by the international context. Consequently, a transnational flow of ideas shape national inquiries, apologies and redress packages.
