Event Details

Child marriage occurs in every region of the world, and while many contributing factors transcend borders, local circumstances also play an important role. It is imperative that we understand the particular contextual factors, including social norms, that cause child marriage to persist in the particular areas in which we work. With thorough, context-focused research, practitioners can fashion effective programs and policies to combat the practice.

Recent field work by ICRW in Malawi, by INSAD in Mexico and by Plan International in 8 Latin American countries (Bolivia, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Peru, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Honduras) has focused on the roles deep-rooted norms and local context play. Presenters will delve into the foundations of child marriage in these different contexts, share their experiences measuring social norms, and hope to shed light on ways to catalyze meaningful and sustained social change.
