Doctoral Thesis extract:  'Are We Safer Now?’ applies public health and regulatory theory to child safe policies in gymnastics to analyse if we are making our sport safer for the next generation. The author tracks the progress of gymnastics policies through the decades, with particular focus on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse. She brings to this thesis the insights of being a child athlete in high-performance gymnastics, knowledge of the socio-cultural pressures that surround policy application, and the experience of being a survivor rallying for positive organisational change to sport.
