There is much discussion about forced marriages, without there being a clear method to determine a forced marriage. Is pressure really exactly the same as coercion and force?
This chart intends to cover this gap. By means of the chart you first establish whether there is actually a marriage, or plans for a marriage (for without a marriage or plans, there cannot be a forced marriage). Then, secondly, you determine whether, in a given case, there are forms of coercion. For coercion in a general sense there exist objective criteria that, e.g., also apply to abduction, rape and forced labor.
