Sexual abuse and willingness to report within the Jehova's Witness community

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This study focuses on the influence that patterns, rules, customs and structures within the Jehovah's Witness community in the Netherlands have on the manner in which sexual abuse or alleged sexual abuse are dealt with as well as the willingness to report sexual abuse or alleged sexual abuse. One important conclusion of the study is that the manner in which the abuse is handled within the Jehovah's Witness community leaves victims or alleged victims of sexual abuse feeling insufficiently recognised and supported.
