What Data? What Happens?

Policy Relevance

Honour-Based Abuse (HBA) is an international, national and local issue. It is a form of domestic abuse and, often, of violence against women and girls, and includes issues such as female genital mutilation and forced marriage, ending which are part of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. HBA affects minoritised people across the UK, but there is wide disparity in relevant agencies’ abilities to respond to local needs because of differences in data-collection, data-analysis and the design and implementation of effective evidence-based policy.

Our project looks to explore how the UK can develop effective multi-level governance structures regarding HBA, which encourage participation, engagement and cooperation from a variety of key stakeholders (including police, local authorities, third sector specialist organisations, health professionals, schools, and survivors) to strengthen our capacity to identify those at risk of HBA and effective strategies for combating it at the local, regional and national level.
