on Strategies to Address "Crimes of Honour"

Notes: The "Project on Strategies to Address Crimes of Honour'' seeks to facilitate co-operation among activists, lawyers, academics and others regarding strategies to combat impunity for those responsible for 'honour' crimes and to challenge the climate of support for the practice amongst state institutions. The Project works closely with individuals in a number of different countries, in Europe, the Americas, South Asia and the Middle East. It has focused on cases of so called "honour killings," and other forms of violence against women, including interference with the right to marry, perpetrated in the name of "honour" of the family or the community. The Project website includes the Project statement, the Annotated Bibliography and the Directory on Initiatives to Address "Crimes of Honour'', which includes the contacts and brief descriptions of organisations and individuals working on the issue in different countries and regions and is being updated continuously. The website furthermore includes a number of publications and papers produced by the Project as well as other resource materials and links to organisations working on the issue.
