It is when a group interprets honour as the most important characteristic to maintain and sustain, no matter what costs, that oppression to the point of violence emerges. The study uses, beside the examples of the professionals, the theories on socialization, internalisation,... (More)

It is when a group interprets honour as the most important characteristic to maintain and sustain, no matter what costs, that oppression to the point of violence emerges. The study uses, beside the examples of the professionals, the theories on socialization, internalisation, class fractions, and respectability to concretize and explain the complex system consisting of norms and values, in which honour is embedded.
