Title: Book Review: Unni Wikan, In Honour of Fadime: Murder & Shame.
Authors: Sev'er, Aysan
Keywords: honour killing
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Anthropological Quarterly
Citation: Review of Unni Wikan, In Honor of Fadime: Murder & Shame. Translated by Anna Paterson. 2008 [2003]. Chicago: The University of Chicago Press. in Anthropological Quarterly, Vol. 82, No. 2, pp. 611–624
Abstract: Sometimes for purely humanitarian reasons, sometimes because of general globalization, but at other times, for the sheer need for cheap/docile labor power, the Northern European states have increasingly opened their doors to refugees, immigrants and guest workers from much less developed parts of the world. These newcomers, whether from Southeastern Asia, Northern Africa or the Middle East, have brought with them many aspects of their rich traditions, arts, belief systems, customs and strong family values. Occasionally, a few have also brought with them some of the most problematic aspects of their intrafamilial violence. In fact, the level of violence has turned their host countries aghast and horror-struck. The pattern which Wikan explores is called ‘honor-killings,’ and the case study she explores in detail is the 2002 murder of Fadime Sahindal, in Uppsala, by her biological father.
