Moving Beyond Abuse

Show Summary Details


This chapter and the previous one trace the impact of institutional positioning and collective identity negotiations on VOTF affiliates’ attempts to address movement goals. This chapter focuses specifically on the goals of supporting priests of integrity and structural change within the church, allowing affiliates to address larger issues that might have enabled the abuse. It also identifies three paths for IISMs in response to their movement environment: institutional integration, parallelism, and independence. Affiliates varied in their chosen path based upon their reception by local Catholic leaders.

Keywords: Voice of the Faithful; priests; structural change; institutional integration; parallelism; independence; Catholic Church
