“Institutional abuse does not stop when we age out of the system”. Former Senator Andrew Murray shares the essay that he co-authored with Dr Marilyn Rock The Enduring Legacy of Growing up in Care in 20th Century Australia.
On 20 June 2000, on the motion of Senator Andrew Murray, the Senate referred the issue of child migration to the Australian Senate’s Community Affairs References Committee for inquiry and report. Later, in 2003, Senator Murray referred the Inquiry into Children in Institutional Care to the same committee.
The Enduring Legacy of Growing up in Care in 20th Century Australia was presented to the Annual Conference of the Australasian Society for Traumatic Stress Studies in September 2005.
