‘Honour’-based violence in Kurdish communities

This paper draws on a
growing body of international literature to explore current
understandings of ‘honour’-based violence (HBV) and examine
the measures that have been implemented to address this
problem. In particular, it links these broader discussions to
the findings of the first international study of HBV in Kurdish
communities in the United Kingdom (UK) and the Iraqi Kurdistan
Region (Begikhani, Gill and Hague, 2010), though the
focus is on the UK section of this research. The paper concludes
with a number of recommendations for developing
and enhancing current practice and policy.
