Abstract

There has been extensive debate over the criminalisation of forced marriage. Critics oppose it on the basis that it is likely to deter victims from seeking help. Kaye Quek argues in favour of the legislation, writing that it can send a firm message that forced marriage will not be tolerated by either the state or the community.
