Child marriage is not a rare occurrence in Georgia and is linked to gender inequality, among other issues. In addition, the factors that trigger child marriage are not homogeneous and vary according to religious, ethnic, and regional differences.

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