Honour Related Violence: A European Resource Book and Good Practice-Based on the European Project “Prevention of Violence against Women and Girls in Patriarchal Families”

Kvinnoforum (2005). Honour Related Violence: A European Resource Book and Good Practice-Based on the European Project “Prevention of Violence against Women and Girls in Patriarchal Families”.

This Resource Book is one of the outcomes of a European project regarding honour related violence. The purpose of this Resource Book
is to increase and improve the support to those who suffer from honour related violence (HRV), and to prevent the future occurrence of this violence. The resource Book gives an overview of the present situation of HRV in the respective countries that have participated  in this project, and  discusses the level
of occurrence of HRV. It also points out important findings and recommendations for future work against HRV in the affected countries.
This Resource Book also provides a presentation of examples of good practice. We have chosen to highlight a number of good examples of supportive and preventive work from both authorities and civil societies organisations to cover different areas in regards to working against HRV, but there are many more. Additional contacts can be found in the end of each country report in an overview of organisations working against HRV, and the various preventive and supportive work they do. There is also presentation of initiatives, contact persons and resource groups from different authorities.
