Forced marriage is an issue hidden from mainstream society due to the extreme and fearful nature of the crime. Only recently has the issue been surfaced due to the voicing of concerns of friends and peers of the victims who are unable to attain any assistance. There has been a significant rise in incidences of this crime in recent years with a notable increase of such incidents since 2007. This book highlights the complexity of the concepts within the issue of forced marriage. The discourse assesses the various literature regarding the different themes highlighted from the phenomenon of forced marriage. The debate in this book establishes that the relationship between concepts of 'gender empowerment' and 'honour'is highly complex and therefore applying practical solutions to the issue could prove highly problematic This book should prove useful for academic students in undergraduate programmes within the fields of Crimiology, Sociology and Psychology. Furthermore this book should appeal to victim services in order to gain a better understanding of forced marriages and how to control such a crime.
