Toward an end to child marriage: lessons from research and practice in development and humanitarian sectors

Author: Julie Freccero, Audrey Whiting Organisation: Save the Children, Human Rights Center Year: 2018

This report by the Human Rights Center looks at efforts to address child marriage in both humanitarian and development contexts. It provides recommendations to help Save the Children strengthen their response to child marriage. These recommendations will also be relevant for many other organisations.

Based on a review of existing research, of Save the Children and other organisations’ reports and programme documents, and on interviews with practitioners, this report summarises what we know about the benefits and challenges of different types of interventions in development and crisis-affected contexts. It highlight gaps in research and in practitioners’ responses, and makes suggestions on how to fill these gaps.
