There are few issues that involve as many complex emotions as honour-related violence. These are emotions that are culturally determined; at the same time they deeply affect personal lives. This kind of violence also evokes strong emotions in society. This book gives police officers and other professionals a guideline for tackling these matters effectively and justly. Ahmed Aboutaleb, mayor of Rotterdam Unfortunately, violence in the name of honour regularly occurs in our society. Each year, in approximately three thousand cases, the Dutch National Police Force takes into consideration that an affront to honour can be a motive for violence or the threat of violence. It is not always easy to recognise honour-related cases, given that the violation and restoration of honour comes in many manifestations, ranging from verbal threats to murder. What is more, this kind of violence can affect people during different stages of their lives. In the process, men and women turn up not only as victims but also as suspects. This book is intended as an introduction to the complex world of honour and violence, and it is intended for police officers and other professionals who have to deal with these matters during the course of their work. It gives professionals insight into the following issues: Why is honour so important? How can the warning signs that a conflict is threatening to escalate into violence be recognised? What can professionals do about it
