Mathlouma: Removing Honor from Crimes of Honor (2009-2010)

2010

The Information and Research Center - King Hussein Foundation in collaboration with the European Commission conducted a project on so-called honor crimes in Jordan.The project included a research component as well as the production of a series of videos to raise awareness on the issue. The purpose of the research study was to investigate the link between economics and honor crimes in Jordan. It investigated the nature of these crimes in relation to a formula of poverty indicators alongside society’s perceptions of family honor, the role of women, and morality. Conclusions drawn from the study reveal that so-called crimes of honor are related to poverty, suggesting that the poor are more likely to commit such crimes.
