  • Research study - juror perceptions of children in the courtroom

    We are undertaking a study that investigates how people's perceptions towards Child Sexual Assault (CSA) influences conviction outcomes.

    Alarmingly, only 17% of CSA disclosures result in conviction. It is shocking that despite the prevalence of the crime, CSA has such a low prosecution rate.

    We are seeking Australian citizens over the age of 18 to undertake an anonymous online survey. It only takes 20 minutes to complete!

    Through this, participants will hopefully gain awareness about the issue of CSA and insights into their own attitudes. The results would contribute greatly to the research on perception of child victims and ultimately help to build pro-child attitudes as well as positively impact on the allocation of resources to research concerning causal mechanisms and intervention/supervision processes.
