CCSD publishes research on child marriage in a Syrian IDP camp
Between December 2015 and January 2016, CCSD conducted research on the issue of child marriage along the Syrian-Turkish border in the Atma, Qah, and Al-Salam camps. These are the three largest camps for IDPs in the Syrian province of Idlib. The research, conducted through focus group discussions and interviews that reached nearly 70 people, reveals the key drivers of the rise in child marriage in the camps. At the same time, it explores people’s attitudes and perceptions towards child marriage, which are evolving as the result of the conflict. This research can provide a basis for designing suitable interventions to better prevent or mitigate this problem, taking into account important nuances.
