Future of the Child Abuse Inquiry
Mal Fletcher on BBC Radio
One in every 14 people in England and Wales was sexually abused in childhood according to a study unveiled a few days ago (time or writing: 07/08/2016).
Meanwhile, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has been thrown into turmoil once again by the resignation of its latest head, Dame Lowell Goddard.
The former New Zealand judge resigned having, at the time of writing, given no clear reason for her decision.
What is wrong with this troubled inquiry? What should be done to move this important inquiry forward?
Mal Fletcher, social commentator and futurist, looks at the issue in this discussion with the BBC's David Prever.
