July 30, 2021
Other Event in Australia

The Sydney Southeast Asia Centre (SSEAC) will host a fascinating IS4 webinar on July 30, 2021, at 7:00 am (Bangkok/Jakarta Time). This time, they will discuss one of Indonesia’s most complex social issues: child marriage.

Child marriage is prohibited by international law, yet it is estimated that about 150 million girls will be married in childhood by 2030. It remains a widespread practice in Indonesia, with detrimental consequences for both women and men, including lesser educational attainment, lower earnings, and less say in household decision-making.

In this talk, Professor Lisa Cameron and Assistant Professor Margaret Triyana will present some of their research findings on the impact of child marriage in Indonesia.
