“Honour”: Crimes, paradigms, and violence against women

Welchman, L. and S. Hossain, Eds. (2005). “Honour”: Crimes, paradigms, and violence against women. New York, Zed Books.

This volume brings together the practical insights and experiences of individuals and organizations addressing so-called “honour crimes”, including “honour killings”, and interference with the right to marry, as well as analyzing relevant crosscutting thematic issues. In addition, this book identifies relevant intersecting thematic issues from practice-orientated academic perspective. It seeks to highlight a human rights based framework in seeking to address “crimes of honour” rather than taking a culturally relativist approach.
