In Bosnia and Herzegovina, child marriages occur among all sections of the population. Sporadic evidence indicates that child marriage is more prevalent in the Roma community, though due to a number of subjective and objective reasons this observation is difficult to quantify.

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.
