Understanding child marriage amongst Syrian Refugee Communities in Jordan and Lebanon: Summary of main research findings

This large, multi-method piece of research was undertaken in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire (UK), with lead researcher Dr. Aisha Hutchinson who has worked on the project with Tdh from 2016 -2020. The research draws together deliverables based on different research methodologies, addressing a variety of angles to analyse the process of child marriage itself, illuminating how it is understood, explained, considered and justified by girls and their families, as well as tackling policy and programme responses and the views and processes followed by different governments, organisations and community stakeholders such as faith-based actors. It also details the challenges faced by married girls and their reflections on marriage and life in the future.
