Child Marriage Research

Child Marriage Research

Location: Banten, Jawa Barat, Jawa Timur dan Madura, Sulawesi Selatan, NTB, and urban community
Duration: 1 tahun
Status: Ongoing

Description:
Researches on the impact of child marriage have been carried out by many other institutions. The impact on reproductive health, domestic violence, and divorce are strongly associated with child marriage. However, there has never been an institution that examines the causes, driving factors, and what institutions that legalize the practice of child marriage. In fact, it is essential to know the driving factors behind the practice to map policy advocacy. Moreover, our hypothesis is religious values and views, such as women’s dignity and sanctity, also contributes to this practice in Indonesia.

Outcome: Books, policy papers, media campaign, and documentary film
Supported by: Ford Foundation
