The focal point of this research paper (2005) is the question: What place do forced marriages occupy in the process of choosing a spouse among Turks, Moroccans and Hindustani in the Netherlands? This research paper focuses on a comparison between the three groups named.
The following research questions are posed:
1. What views are held with respect to marriage, the importance of marriage and how it is brought about (especially the place given to freedom of choice, on the one hand, and coercion, on the others, with respect to who one is to marry)
