IamA a journalist who recently reported on forced marriage in Belgium AMA!
I’m Valerie Gauriat, a reporter for Euronews, I recently made a report about forced marriage in Belgium. It was one of the first EU countries to criminalise the practice, which is much more widespread than we might think. During my trip I met victims and professionals working with those victims.
Today from 10am Eastern time (or 4pm CET) you can ask me anything about forced marriage in Europe or about reporting on these kind of topics and I'll respond based on my experience.
Edit: Thank you for your questions, I have to go now. If I can come back to answer more at a later date I will.
