Forced Marriage of People with Learning Disabilities: Reasons, Risks and Responses

Source By: SCWRU at King's College London

This SCWRU / Making Research Count workshop will be led by Rachael Clawson, Assistant Professor in Social Work and Dr Rachel Fyson, Associate Professor and Director of the Centre for Social Work, both from the University of Nottingham.

This session will examine findings from research which looked at the specific needs of people with learning disabilities who are at risk of being forced to marry. It will consider how capacity to consent to marriage is decided and will reflect upon the reasons why a family may choose marriage for their relative. Consequences of forced marriage for the victim, their spouse and wider family members will be discussed. The differences between forced marriage of people with and without learning disabilities and what this means for safeguarding policy and practice will be explored.

Date: Thursday 15th June 2017     Time: 14:00-16:00

Venue: Room G79, Franklin-Wilkins Building, King’s College London, Waterloo Campus, Stamford Street, London SE1 9NH
