This book examines the different forms that honour-based abuse crimes take and analyses the
discretionary police practices employed when responding to these incidents. Honour-based
abuse is an incident or crime involving violence, threats of violence, intimidation, coercion or
abuse committed in order to protect or defend the honour of an individual, family and or
community for a perceived breach of their code of behaviour. Based on unique UK police data,
it includes examination of one hundred honour abuse cases and interviews with fifteen
predominantly detective specialist police officers that investigate this crime. This book
recognises the challenges encountered when policing honour-based abuse and offers
recommendations for addressing them. It will particularly benefit police forces in England and
Wales, the Home Office, scholars in gendered violence and policing, and non-government
organisations (charities supporting victims) by highlighting some of the issues associated with
policing, partnership working arrangements and safeguarding victims of honour-based abuse
