Geetanjali Gangoli, University of Bristol, gives a talk for the COMPAS seminar series on forced marriage and its implications on immigration and human rights

The issue of forced marriage is extremely contentious in the UK, and has undergone much policy and legal shifts in the past few decades. This talk looks at how immigration policies treat the issue of forced marriage including attempts to increase entry age on a marriage visas and current rhetoric on immigration, and attempt to look at the implications that these engagements have had and potentially continue to have for gender, ethnicity and immigration issues nationally and internationally. It will specifically look at the twists and turns in immigration and forced marriage policy over the last decade, and government approaches to research evidence in this regard.
