Honour Killings : International Human Rights and Crimes Against Women in Turkey Hardback
Part of the Library of Modern Middle East Studies series
Leyla Pervizat argues that honour killings are a form of extrajudicial execution which can only be challenged by looking at its socio-political and economic contexts.
Focusing on honour crimes in Turkey, she provides an holistic, interdisciplinary analysis of a large number of legal and non-legal cases, international human rights mechanisms, and initiatives to combat the issue.
This study is essential to furthering understanding of honour killings in indigenous and diaspora communities around the world - and identifies hope for eradicating this difficult and culturally-ingrained practice.
