Child Marriage in Humanitarian Settings in South Asia: Policy Brief (Rohingya Community in Bangladesh)

This policy brief summarises key findings with regards to child marriage among the Rohingya community in Bangladesh, based on the report, Child Marriage in Humanitarian Settings in South Asia: Study Results from Bangladesh and Nepal.

It compares 400 registered refugee households, those who arrived in Bangladesh prior to 1995, and 800 Forcibly Displaced Myanmar National (FDMN) households, who arrived after October 2016, and were not granted refugee status by the Bangladesh government. While the report covers a wider range of aspects of child marriage within these communities, this brief will focus on prevalence, influencing factors, and recommendations.
