Child Marriage

Pin It

Little is known about how conflict and displacement affect marriage practices, or how humanitarian actors could better ensure the rights of adolescent girls at risk. We are working to better understand the impact that conflict and displacement can have on child marriage practices. Findings suggest that emergencies may fundamentally alter marriage practice and increase vulnerabilities among adolescents. We are working to identify programs and strategies that mitigate risks of early marriage as well as how to best serve girls who are already married.
