Documentation List



Ipce is a forum for people who are engaged in scholarly discussion about the understanding and emancipation of mutual relationships between children or adolescents and adults.

 In this context, these relationships are intended to be viewed from an unbiased, non-judgmental perspective and in relation to the human rights of both the young and adult partners.
Ipce meets once every one or two years in a different country, publishes a newsletter and a web site, co-ordinates the (electronic) exchange of texts and keeps an archive of specific written publications.  


Welcome, reader of the 18th E(lektronic) Ipce Newsletter. 

The Newsletter is especially made for who cannot reach the Ipce web site and is sent to them in the paper version. It gives a look at the developments and a selection of the most important articles. For the reader on line, it gives a quick view. The real Newsletter is the page “What is new?” on the Ipce web site, which gives a lot more information and refers to many other files. 

The main theme of this newsletter is “Myths and Facts”. There are a lot of myths in the field of  mutual relationships between children or adolescents and adults. You will see some articles who give the myths, but also the facts.  

The next section, about ethics, is a short one. You will see that at least two organizations, Martijn and Clogo, have chosen the same guidelines as Ipce did in the meeting in 2004, as is reported in the former Newsletter. Facts are important in this field – ethics are also important.

The research section is also a quite short one. We only give a quick view to the developments by referring to recent articles.  

More room is used by the section about some current events. The case of Michael Jackson will draw a lot of attention, especially in the USA media. It seems that the case already before it began had more attention in the USA media than the war in Iraq, which is strangely enough because it is there that their sons fall in battle, while the Jackson case only concerns some lessons in – not arithmetic, but – masturbation. If there is a law that forbids such lessons, let a judge pass judgement about it, but let it as much as possible be what it is: a private matter between two people. We do not intend to give so much attention to the case, but for a good and sharp analysis will be room, as you will read in this Newsletter.  

We give also room to the case of Mary Kay Letourneau. A reader of our web site wrote us that he found it remarkable that not much information is given in the site about women. This correct. On the web site, there is a new overview of the articles about women.  

In this case we see a woman who came to have sex with a beloved male minor. After eight years in prison, the couple will soon be joined in marriage. The reader sent us some articles, a part of which could be placed here. He gives facts and analysis and asks why women with such kind of love affairs are punished far more severely than men, even than murder. Happily enough, in this case, real and patient love is the winner.
