Jones, Adele and Trotman Jemmott, Ena (2016) Status, privilege and gender inequality: Cultures of male impunity and entitlement in the sexual abuse of children– perspectives from a Caribbean study. International Social Work, 59 (6). pp. 836-849. ISSN 0020-8728

This article reports from a Caribbean study on the sexual victimization of children. The authors proposes a synergistic approach to analysing the ways in which the multi-layered facets of abuse interact to reinforce each other and argues that these understandings can generate multi-level activities (conceptual, material, structural) that together might produce effects that are greater than their individual components. For example, a sex offender treatment programme that is developed alongside a public health oriented education and prevention programme, and in which both address the status of children and gender socialization, may be more effective in combination than as separate interventions.
