Honor-based violence: policing and prevention

Karl Anton Roberts, Gerry Campbell, Glen Lloyd

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Investigating honor-based violence can be difficult without a firm grasp of the cultural underpinnings behind the behavior. This volume explores the characteristics and causes of honor-based violence and offers practical insights into effective methods of policing. The research and best practices are drawn largely from the work done by the Violent Crime Directorate of the Metropolitan Police Service (London, UK) managed by Campbell and Lloyd. The accessible style of this text makes it a valuable resource for law enforcement and policing professionals who investigate these crimes and an ideal textbook for policing and criminal justice courses.
