2015 (English)In: Apologies and the Legacy of Abuse of Children in 'Care': International Perspectives / [ed] Johanna Sköld, Shurlee Swain, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015, 159-171 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Drawing on their experiences as an inquiry commissioner and archivist of a Financial Redress Board, Sköld and Jensen set out to discuss conflicting understandings of truth and reliability that appear when care-leavers’ testimonies are tested against archival records in financial redress processes. They describe dilemmas that have put their professional as well as personal codes of ethics to the test, arguing that the judicial system of financial redress requires standards of proof that neither archival records nor oral testimonies can meet.
