Project Details

Description

Funded (£17,918) by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute (£16,418), Strathclyde Law School (£1,000) and Hemat Gryffe Women's Aid (£500). A series of multi-agency, multi-disciplinary events providing a forum for the analysis of current legal and policy frameworks in Scotland concerning Honour Based Abuse (HBA).
The project and events will consider the protection provided to victims of gender-based HBA through the law and policing. The project will illuminate and evaluate the effect of the law and policing on women who are impacted by the intersecting factors of gender, ethnicity, family networks, linguistic, financial, educational, immigration and other barriers in the face of HBA, creating recommendations for law reform, policy reform, and an animation to be played by Police Scotland in airport and immigration venues in relation to HBA.
