Product Description

Stop Child Marriage has been a growing movement in Indonesia since the early 2010s. Child marriage, in this context, means marriage involving anybody under the age of eighteen. Women's rights and children's rights are at the centre of this movement. Both Indonesian and international organizations oppose marriage under the age of eighteen, trying to develop strategies to counter the wrongs and abuses they have observed. This book is the outcome of a workshop on child marriage research: twelve chapters that complement studies of contemporary child marriage in Indonesia. This collection of interdisciplinary research provides an excellent background for debates and discourses on child marriage at the national and international level. This book aims to inspire more activists, academics and policymakers towards informing and supporting adolescents in their choices and protecting them, when necessary, from the reality and negative consequences of forced and early marriage.
