Rates of child marriage are high in certain parts of Azerbaijan, and are the result of a combination of cultural attitudes, such as the importance attached to marriage and motherhood for women, and socioeconomic factors, such as poverty.

This is one of 14 country summaries produced by UNFPA EECARO about child marriage in the region, including country-specific national and legal context, responses, and recommendations for the future.
