A girl no more: the changing norms of child marriage in conflict

Author: Jennifer Schlecht Organisation: Women's Refugee Commission Year: 2016

This report presents findings from a study conducted by the Women’s Refugee Commission, which looks at child marriage in four different communities affected by conflict in Ethiopia, Lebanon, and Uganda. As crises exacerbate poverty and fear of sexual violence, families may see child marriage as a solution to protect girls.

The report identifies six key recommendations to address child marriage in these contexts.
