A Practitioner’s Guide to the Ethical Conduct of Research on Child Marriage in Humanitarian Settings

The Practitioner’s Guide to the Ethical Conduct of Research on Child Marriage in Humanitarian Settings is intended to offer practitioners a framework for decision-making considering whether and how to conduct research on child marriage in humanitarian settings. Our focus is on the ethical conduct of research among female and male adolescents and young people (10–24) who are at risk of or have experienced child marriage and are living in challenging, low-resource, and often insecure environments.

This guide is designed to help practitioners make decisions about whether or not human subject research on child marriage is needed in humanitarian settings, and, if it is needed, to help them examine the key concepts, elements, and options that should be considered in conducting ethical research.
