PREMIUM Between 2014 and 2016, Rumah Kita Bersama (Rumah KitaB) conducted research on child marriage in
Banten, West Java (Cirebon, Cisarua/Bogor, Sukabumi), East Java (Lamongan, Madura), West Nusa Tenggara and South Sulawesi.

This study noted the impact of socio-ecological changes in the change of gender relations in families, which has contributed to the practice of child marriage.
