Mitigating Early Marriage and Consanguineous Marriage among Ethnic Minority Groups in Vietnam

Kien Le Trung | Thu Nga Tran Thi [2]


Abstract: Early marriage and consanguineous marriage are problems in many countries. In Vietnam, these activities mostly happen among ethnic minority groups and cause many bad consequences to marital partners, especially girl and women, and their next generations development, gender equality, health care as well as poverty reduction efforts and social affairs. Though they are prohibited by the law, however, local authorities hesitate to apply sanction on ethnic communities. In order to mitigate early marriage and consanguineous marriage, the government of Vietnam must adopt many measures, including strict implementation of the law, extend education and training, enhance statistics system, etc.
