Child Marriage in South Asia -

International & Constitutional Legal Standards & Jurisprudence for Promoting Accountability & Change

Center for Reproductive Rights

 

This briefing paper demonstrates why governments must be held accountable for addressing child marriage in the region and discusses child marriage as a form of early and forced marriage. Child marriage is considered forced marriage under international law, because children—defined as boys and girls under 18 years of age—do not have the legal capacity to provide informed consent to marriage. The phrase “child marriage” is used in this briefing paper rather than “early and forced marriage” because it captures both the elements of age and lack of consent, and because “child” is a more precise term that can be clearly defined and protected in law. Further, childhood represents the vulnerable starting point for the continuum of reproductive and sexual rights violations discussed in this briefing paper.
