Abstract [en]

Although Finland is deemed to be a female-friendly country, it has been criticized for the inability to eradicate violence committed specifically against women. According to the Finnish League for Human Rights, – who work closely with immigrant women suffering from honour-based violence, which is the type of violence focused on in this paper – Finnish social workers nor police are well equipped to deal with women suffering from honour-based violence. Hence, the purpose of this research is to analyse how help-providers and other important collaborators work in practice as well as analyse it from a multi-theoretical perspective. With the aid of the interviews conducted with five help-providers and thematic analysis, I was able to reach a conclusion, which highlighted how the help provided fluctuates between different groups in question. Also, the help provided is very dependent on the competency of the help-providers, which lacks in many aspects due to various intersectional factors.
