Australia did a big study on sex abuse of children in the country and found that the Catholic Church model of child sex abuse coverup had spread to almost every other prominent institution in the nation.

Australia’s Child Sex Abuse Commission Exposes National Tragedy Of Systemic Violence

The commission was set up in 2012 by Prime Minister Julia Gillard following explosive allegations by the former detective chief inspector of New South Wales, Peter Fox, over how the Roman Catholic Church covered up reports of abuse.

The commission received bipartisan support and a wide mandate to examine institutional responses to child sexual abuse across the country and report to government on what it found and make recommendations about how to proceed.

At the heart of its work were the personal stories of survivors. Combined, the six royal commissioners held more than 8,000 private sessions and received more than 1,300 written survivor accounts.


The report detailing all the mischief was "too heavy to lift".
