Child Marriage or Forced Marriage? South Asian Communities in North East England
Gangoli, Geetanjali; McCarry, Melanie; Razak, Amina
Children & Society, v23 n6 p418-429 Nov 2009
This article addresses the links between child marriage and forced marriage in the UK, drawing from a research study on South Asian communities in North East England. It looks at definitional issues through an analysis of UK and South Asian policies. It also analyses how these concepts are understood by service providers, survivors of child marriage and young people from South Asian communities. Finally, concepts such as gender, age, familial and community control reflected in normative marriage practices are addressed.
