Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to highlight discourses that appear in professionals’ descriptions of various aspects of honor-related violence and oppression. The study is based on seven qualitative semi-structured interviews with professionals who are in contact or have been in contact with the phenomenon within the social services. The theoretical and methodological approach has been based on a Foucauldian-inspired interpretation method and an intersectional perspective in order to gain a depth and a breadth in the analysis of the empirical data. We concluded among other things that honor-related violence and oppression can and should be understood without a perspective of we against them. The professionals explain the phenomenon as something that only exists within people with a different background than Swedish. Other cultures, religions and nationalities are opposed to Swedishness. Furthermore, the participants mention that the problem occurs everywhere around the world where no specific culture, religion or nationality is seen as the bearer of honor-related violence and oppression. By contrast, individuals from the Middle East who have Islam as faith are categorized more easily in honor related cases. This is based on prejudice and stereotypical notions of predetermined roles when it is the question of who the perpetrator and the oppressed is in the honor-related context. In addition, it may result in vulnerability in several dimensions. We propose research where vulnerable people can come to speak, get their voices, thoughts and feelings heard. Also, research that can make hidden groups visible for the social services in relation to honor-related violence and oppression, such as LGBTQ individuals.
