Abstract

The chapter analyses major responses to historical institutional abuse of children—public inquiries, criminal prosecution of alleged offenders, civil suits lodged by victim/survivors, and redress schemes—with a focus on the latter. It sketches the historical context of residential and foster care and the circumstances that gave rise to “discovering” institutional abuse in the 1980s. Responses and redress outcomes in Australia and New Zealand are described and compared with those found in other countries. Key questions for future research are raised, such as why some responses are more generous than others, and what types of redress responses may be more effective than others.
