A study on early marriage in Jordan 2014

Organisation: UNICEF Year: 2014

This report provides a snapshot of child marriage in Jordan, including within the Palestinian and Syrian refugee communities.

It provides invaluable insight into the attitudes towards child marriage and demonstrates how the conflict in Syria and the subsequent displacement of millions of people has exacerbated existing pressures on families, often resulting in a rise in child marriage as a response to limited resources and the need to provide a sense of security for their daughters.
