Remedies for Forced Marriage – A Handbook for Lawyers

Author: Interights – The International Centre for the Legal Protection of Human Rights

Publication: 1st Edition 2011, 2nd Edition 2014

This Handbook brings together expert commentaries by lawyers and activists working on the issue of forced marriages and interference with choice in marriage in four different countries: Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and the United Kingdom. The Handbook is intended to assist those seeking legal remedies in such cases, and in particular to prevent forced marriages, and protect those affected. While aimed primarily at lawyers, we hope that it will also be useful for voluntary sector workers, social workers and women’s rights advocates and activists seeking to identify available legal remedies.
