The article (in Norwegian) provides an overview of the legal and cultural aspects of honour killings in the Middle East. Based on ethnographic material from Pakistan, the article argues that honour killings are neither ritualised nor carried out in affect, but premeditated murder. Honour killings are hence preventable and more stringent legal prosecution would significantly reduce the number of victims.
