Sexual Abuse in the Western and Eastern Church and Its Impact on the Region in the EU and the Rest of Europe
This project aims at determing the scale of clerical child abuse in Europe and how it affected people’s beliefs and their religion in the light of the general process of secularization. I will investigate why these cases emerged in the last two and a half
decades. What happened in society that made this possible? Furthermore, I would like to analyze how different media outlets reported on the subject. The result will be a series of articles in different newspapers and magazines, a TV documentary, as well as a book on the topic and a series of lectures for journalists in order to help them to better understand the problem.
