The Third Wave: Justice for survivors of child sexual abuse within the Catholic Church in Latin America

The report, The Third Wave: Justice for survivors of child sexual abuse within the Catholic Church in Latin America, hopes to complement the efforts of survivors in Latin America in pursuing truth, accountability and redress. In covering all 18 Spanish-speaking countries in the region, as well as Brazil, it summarises the regional scale of child sexual abuse and cover-ups by the Catholic Church in each country and how survivors and lawmakers have mobilised in response. The report is a useful resource for national organisations and lobbying groups in Latin America wishing to pursue advocacy on reforming national legislation and establishing public inquiries. The report also establishes the responsibility of national lawmakers to act in support of its citizens and, if need be, in defiance of the Catholic Church.
