Documentary: Trapped in a marriage

Over the past four years, Maastricht University, in collaboration with the National Workgroup Mudawannah, Dutch Refugee Organizations (VON), the Clara Wichmann Foundation and Atria, conducted a thorough investigation into marital captivity in the Netherlands and what can be done against it – particularly in legal terms. On 13 September, the researchers Esther van Eijk, Benedicta Deogratias and Pauline Kruiniger presented their conclusions during the conference: Gevangen in een huwelijk. Recht, religie & praktijk (Marital captivity. Law, religion & practice).
