Forced marriages and honour killings, study, author Gerhard Robbers

This report aims at providing a comparative analysis of the ways in which forced marriages and honour killings are framed in the laws and practices taking place across the different Member States of the EU as well as in a selection of neighbouring countries. While statistical data on forced marriages and honour killings is often scarce, this report shows that these practices can be indeed found in a number of countries. At times of carrying the comparative analysis the legal context requires specific attention, not least for defining forced marriages but also for looking at the various steps which are taken to counter this phenomenon
