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 cross-cutting thematic issues. In addition, this book identifies relevant intersecting thematic issues from practice-orientated academic perspective. It highlights a human rights based framework in seeking to address "crimes of honour" rather than taking a culturally relativist approach.
