Remedies for forced marriage. A handbook for lawyers

Organisation: International Center for the Legal Protection of Human Rights (INTERIGHTS) Year: 2014

This toolkit brings together expert commentaries by lawyers and activists working on the issue of forced marriages in four countries: Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and the United Kingdom. The Handbook is intended to assist those seeking legal remedies, to prevent forced marriages and protect those affected.

While aimed primarily at lawyers, it will also be useful for voluntary sector workers, social workers and women’s rights advocates and activists seeking to identify available legal remedies.
