Honour: Crimes, Paradigms, and Violence Against Women


Honour brings together the practical insights and experiences of individuals and organizations working in diverse regions and contexts to combat ‘crimes of honour’. The book examines strategies of response to such manifestations of violence against women, focusing largely on ‘honour killings’, forced marriages, and the related use of ‘honour’ and ‘provocation’ as a legal defence in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, and South Asia. This timely book highlights activist and practice-orientated academic perspectives from both the South and the North.
