In Serbia, child marriages occur predominantly among the Roma population, where they are linked to patriarchal attitudes towards women’s role in society and the family, and to control over women’s sexuality.

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.
