The chart of categories regarding honour related violence we developed in 2007 has been used much in the Netherlands. The chart allows you to inventory – together with your client – the seriousness of a given case.
Is here family honour, the family’s moral reputation, at stake, or is there another problem (that potentially can be just as dangerous)?
The chart shows in which case a situation could escalate, but whether it will, and, if so, in which way, depends on still other factors that differ from one case to the other. Therefore, use this chart with care.
