Tools for researching child marriage

Effective action on child marriage relies on understanding the role and nature of the norms that contribute to it. This set of tools, curated by Meg Greene and the ALIGN team, outlines some of the resources that are available for researching and monitoring change in norms related to child marriage. Some have been created specifically for understanding child marriage and others can be adapted for this purpose.
