Our policy paper for this week is finally here.
Written in a style that is somewhat unique, the paper discusses the issue of early marriages in South Sudan, with the Toposa of the State of Kapoeta as a case study, a community where early and forced marriages are engrained in the culture.
A girl may be married off as young as nine years old for as low as two cows valued at $100 apiece to an old man.
