Honour-based violence: grave human rights abuses in the EU

New Report by the Centre For Social Cohesion in the UK:

"Crimes of the Community: Honour-based violence in the UK"
James Brandon and Salam Hafez

Crimes of the Community examines how ideas of honour can lead to violence. Examining forced marriages, honour killings, female genital mutilation (FGM) and honour-based domestic violence, the report explains why such violence is carried out and why it continues. Based on over 80 interviews with women's groups, community activists and the victims of honour-based violence, Crimes of the Community is the most comprehensive study of honour-based violence ever conducted in the UK.
