Boundary Breaking


Boundary Breaking is a project of the Centre for Catholic Studies (CCS) within the Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University.

  • The project will deliver a set of theologically-informed reflections and recommendations on safeguarding and culture within the Catholic Church. These recommendations will be intended to help the Catholic Church respond proactively to the sexual abuse crisis it has faced.
  • As part of the project we will host an international conference to present our research findings and recommendations, and generate further discussion and action.
  • The project team will also write up the findings of our research for publication.

If you have been affected by sexual abuse, or any form of sexual violence, and wish to report it or seek help, you will find a series of helpful links here.
