Women Migrants and their Daughters: Reduction of Forced Marriages

29.05.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This dossier examines the practice of forced marriages in France and seeks to answer the following questions: Are forced marriages frequent in France? Are they increasing or decreasing? Who are the individuals concerned? To this end, the document resumes the findings of a survey on the diversity of populations in France conducted in 2008 among a sample of 22,000 individuals. The survey has collected information on the conditions under which the respondents married, thereby identifying the cases of "forced marriage".
