When two worlds clash : A qualitative study about honor-related oppression in western countries (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate how people from a honor-related background are living their lives in western countries. Over the years honor-related oppression have attracted much attention, especially in western countries where it is considered as a great social problem. Studies show that honor-related oppression tend to increase when people migrate to western countries. This is because of the culture clash people are experiencing when traditional collective values clash with western individualized values. The core of this study is to analyze what type of honor-related oppression occur in which situations. Also how people from a honor-related background view westerners and how those same people find their independence from or in the collective. The empirical material that is used for this study are autobiographies from people that have lived, or are still living, in a honor-related environment in western countries. The autobiographies are written by both men and women from different cultures and background. The results show that honor-related oppression has its basis in the clash between the traditional values about chastity and family influence, and the western values of independence. Young people have an ambition to be more independent, like the westerners, and the collective fears the western values. This forms the main reason as to why the collective practice honor-related oppression and violence and to why young people struggle with their own independence.
