The aim of this legal study, which was prepared in the framework of the national campaign to protect minors from early marriage in Lebanon, is to shed light on the reality of this phenomenon and on the measures to be adopted by the different actors in order to eliminate it.The first part of the study addresses the legal issues related to minor girl’s marriage in Lebanon, such as the various and multi-religious legislations related to the different sects in Lebanon, and the urgent need to amend certain legal texts and to issue specialised laws.The second part focuses on the issues of awareness and protection and the negative social, psychological, health and physical effects of early marriage on minor girls.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
