Abstract: This dissertation examines the pervasive issue of forced child marriage within the distressing context of armed conflict. The study navigates through the intersections of child marriage and armed conflict, shedding light on the urgent complexities and heightened vulnerabilities faced by children in conflict zones. Drawing on a rich body of literature, the research explores the drivers, impacts, and critical need for effective interventions to safeguard the rights and well-being of these vulnerable children. The analysis encompasses feminist perspectives, human rights frameworks, intersectionality, and the role of cultural and societal norms, offering a nuanced understanding of the multifaceted nature of child forced marriage in conflict settings. The dissertation also delves into the contributions of international organizations and academic research, emphasizing both the global overview and the necessity for comprehensive regional studies to address the unique challenges faced by child brides in different conflict-affected areas. Highlighting research gaps and the imperative for long-term perspectives, the study underscores the need to comprehend the intergenerational and long-term consequences of forced child marriage in the context of armed conflict. The voices and perspectives of the children themselves are emphasized, advocating for participatory research approaches to inform holistic and child-centered interventions. The dissertation concludes with a call for nuanced, context-specific strategies and policy recommendations to combat forced child marriage in armed conflict settings.
