Unrecognised sexual abuse and exploitation of children in child, early and forced marriage

Author: Dr. Eliana Riggio Chaudhuri Organisation: Plan International, ECPAT Year: 2015

ECPAT and Plan International provide an analysis of the relationship between child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) and the sexual exploitation and abuse of children.

The report uses a conceptual framework to explore how CEFM can constitute a form of sexual abuse and exploitation of children as well as a form of commercial exploitation because of the financial gains for adult parties in contracting a union. This is a largely unexplored discussion which the report revives through the use of their Framework for Action.
