Child activism to end child marriage

Kay Tisdall from the University of Edinburgh and Patricio Cuevas-Parra from World Vision look to what can be learned conceptually and practically from children’s activism, where children have actively changed decisions in their communities. Their research project explore common components of child actions to stop child marriage found in Bangladesh and Ghana. Their findings are discussed under three themes: the power of collaboration; the child activists’ individual development and community development; and considering why child activism was so successful at stopping child marriages.
