Plenary: The role of multilateral organisations in ending child marriage Multilateral organisations play a major role in ending child marriage around the world.

The value and risks of criminalising child marriage: Building a common understanding Countries hoping to end child marriage often start by banning it, with criminal consequences for those involved. Criminalisation sends a strong signal that the practice is not accepted, but does it help change social practices? To what extent does a change in the law reach those who are supposed to enforce it? And what are some of the unintended consequences of a ban? Join us for an interactive session to build a shared understanding of the value and risks of criminalising child marriage.
