Honor Killings: Socio-Legal Dimensions (Saint James’ Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Jan, Aneeda, University of Kashmir

In this fascinating new study, Aneeda Jan examines an enduring problem prevailing on an international scale. In the absence of any comprehensive approach, the phenomenon of honor killings is mainly viewed as a social menace than a criminal act demanding global solutions. Why is the menace of honor killing so rampant? How can we analyze or focus on social and legal measures adopted by different countries to prevent honor killings? To what extent have judicial bodies provided guidance to set standards regarding the prevention and control of honor killings?
