Child marriage in Serbia

A situational analysis

UNICEF Serbia/2017/Shubuckl


To inform adequate policy and social responses, UNICEF in Serbia developed a synthesis report on child marriage, based on existing international and national knowledge, reports, analyses and case studies.

The findings of the report show the crucial need for strengthening data collection systems in almost all sectors and for designing interventions for the educational, economic and peer empowerment of young girls.

The analysis also shows that very few interventions were implemented with regards to addressing child marriage in Serbia.

As such, effective practices for combating child marriage, particularly in the Roma population, have yet to be created and implemented in Serbia.
