25 October 2018

Ce COI Focus concerne la pratique du mariage forcé en Côte d’Ivoire. Un mariage forcé est un mariage qui est conclu sans le libre consentement des deux époux ou lorsque le consentement d'au moins un des époux a été donné sous la contrainte physique et/ou morale (violence, menaces, chantage affectif, pressions psychologiques, etc.). Si le mariage forcé concerne principalement les femmes et les filles, les hommes et les garçons peuvent également en être victimes.

Le mariage arrangé se distingue du mariage forcé en ce que, même si les familles interviennent dans l’arrangement du mariage, la décision finale revient aux futurs époux. Toutefois, différents degrés de coercition peuvent exister de telle sorte qu’il n’est pas toujours aisé de différencier un mariage arrangé d’un mariage forcé.
