Abstract

Arranged and forced marriages have been a traditional of history that serves as one of the most contraversial practices of past eras, yet it still remains in tact today in many underdeveloped countries. In this journal article published by the International Journal of Transitional Justice, men express their opinions over the forced marriages they are required to join within these central African countries consumed by the Lord's Resistance Army. While most historians and journalists focus on women's accounts, this draws from men directly affected by the forced marriages and how they too faced discrimination and violence. The meaning and understanding of consent and culpability is also analyzed within this article.
