In Kazakhstan, child marriages are rare, but do occur in certain communities and among some ethnic groups, particularly in rural areas. Child marriage is linked to social and cultural norms in these communities, as well as to 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.
