Hoko Horii is a PhD candidate at KITLV, conducting research on international human rights law and its implication on child marriage practices in Indonesia. She has been working with Mies Grijns, who is an anthropologist affiliated to the Van Vollenhoven Institute. Their research project was recently given a grant by the Toyota Foundation. The award amounts to 14.000 Euro.
The Toyota grant will be used for two workshops – one with scholars, government officials and activists in the field of child marriage, the other with judges in her research area. It will also be used to conduct research with the Indonesian community in the Netherlands and fieldwork in Indonesia. The Toyota Foundation provides research grants every year both to individual and joint research projects.
