Organisation: UNICEF, UNFPA, Women's Refugee Commission, Terre des Hommes, University of Bedfordshire, CARE International Year: 2018

This short brief provides an overview of the situation of child marriage in countries affected by conflict and displacement in the Middle-East and North Africa.

Developed by UNICEF, UNFPA, CARE International, the Women’s Refugee Commission, Terre des Hommes and the University of Bedforshire, it also outlines five key strategies to address child marriage in the region.

These strategies are the basis of a Regional Accountability Framework of Action to End Child Marriage in Arab States / MENA (RAF), led by UNICEF and UNFPA in partnership with a consortium of other UN agencies and civil society organisations.
