Honour violence is a phenomenon that occurs world-wide. In these violent acts, women are punished for alleged violations of family ‘honour’, suche punishment in its most extreme verity taking the form of murder. 
This book is the outcome of the International Seminar on Violence in the Name of Honour, a gathering of activists, policy makers, and academircs in Istanbul in 2003. The goal of the Seminar was to engage in a re-thinking of honour killing and to strategize towards global action in combating violence against women. Readers will see thecontributions of this diverse group to a deeper understanding of violence and ways to challenge it.
