Forced Marriage: Introducing a Social Justice and Human Rights Perspective

by Aisha K. Gill & Sundari Anitha (Editors)
£19.99   paperback  Zed Books Ltd (2011)

Forced Marriage: Introducing a Social Justice and Human Rights Perspective by Aisha K. Gill & Sundari Anitha (Editors) Forced Marriage: Introducing a social justice and human rights perspective brings together leading practitioners and researchers from the disciplines of criminology, sociology and law. Together the contributors provide an international, multi-disciplinary perspective that offers a compelling alternative to prevailing conceptualisations of the problem of forced marriage. The volume examines advances in theoretical debates, analyses existing research and presents new evidence that challenges the cultural essentialism that often characterises efforts to explain, and even justify, this violation of women's rights.
 
By locating forced marriage within broader debates on violence against women, social justice and human rights, the authors offer an intersectional perspective that can be used to inform both theory and practical efforts to address violence against diverse groups of women. This unique book, which is informed by practitioner insights and academic research, is essential reading for practitioners and students of sociology, criminology, gender studies and law.
