Introduction to Child Sexual Exploitation in Sport

By nwg at East Midlands

The seminar will cover the following areas:

  1. 1.     CSE in sport – a new problem?
  2. 2.     Messages from research
  3. 3.     Safeguarding & child protection in English sport
  4. 4.     International developments

This seminar will appeal to anyone working within sport who wants to broaden their understanding of child sexual exploitation and its prevention within sport. It will also be of interest to sport and PE lecturers within FE and HE who wish to develop their teaching programme to include CSE, abuse and safeguarding. It will assist those working within CSE prevention to extend their understanding and resources into the field of sport.

This seminar is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the problem of child sexual exploitation in sport and the policy measures in place to prevent it. The seminar explains the historical context and background to the recognition of child abuse in sport, within the UK and beyond, and identifies the key findings from the past thirty years of research into this issue. It provides a thorough and critical introduction to the development of child protection policy in British sport and the safeguarding children in sport policy framework. It also offers educational resources, developed from narrative research with survivors of CSE in sport, that participants may draw upon in their own work. Finally, it ensures participants are abreast of the latest international developments from research, activism and policy development.

About the Facilitator:

Dr Mike Hartill is a Reader in the Sociology of Sport at Edge Hill University (Lancashire) and has been researching CSE in sport for over 15 years. Mike has undertaken life-history research with men and women who were subjected to sexual violence as children within a sport setting. He has also conducted some of the first research into child protection in sport policy and procedures.

He coordinates the Sport Respects Your Rights project (@SportRespect) which aims to empower young people in sport to combat sexual exploitation and he is co-lead on the European project ‘Voices for truth and dignity’ (@Voicessport). Mike has also recently been appointed to advise the FA’s independent review of non-recent child sexual abuse in football.

Police-led research: Supporting and Extending Evidence-Based Policing

By other at North West

The key aim of the CSE and Policing Knowledge Hub is to facilitate collaborative working between academia and policing in order to develop evidence-informed enhanced police responses to young people affected by this abuse. Evidence-informed policing is the notion that police practices should be based on scientific evidence about what works best. This is particularly crucial in light of recent criticisms of police practice in safeguarding adolescents who have experienced or are at risk of experiencing CSE. The CSE and Policing Knowledge Hub are supporting police in a variety of ways to better utilise and understand research. One of these ways is the commissioning and support of five police-led primary research projects which focus on ways of responding to identified needs within policing practice in the area of CSE and associated vulnerabilities. The projects aim to make a contribution to a relatively undeveloped research field, providing solution focused ways of working in this area.
