I can by using these models find the basic ground that starts women’s exposure for violence in the name of honour in Sweden.
It’s not easy to find a general explanation for all the perpetrators, but some of the models can be used to describe some of the violence cases. The result showed that the feeling of powerlessness is one of the main elements in the explanation of the violence in the name of honour. (Less)
