Abstract

The goal of this presentation is to take a look into the human rights violation of child marriage happening in countries all over the world. For the purpose of this presentation, we will focus on four countries where child marriages are extremely prevalent: India, Niger, Bangladesh, and Yemen. First, we will begin with a brief history and background of child brides and statistics related to this population. Second, we will discuss the four countries (as stated above) where this is a major problem, and why the rates of child brides are especially high within each country. Third, we will consider the consequences of child marriages and the ethical implications. Lastly, we will suggest implementation of an intervention for change that is possible on a global level. We hope to educate, provide awareness, and propose ideas for the implementation of interventions to eradicate this human rights issue.
