TONY IAVARONE HAMILTON DESCRIBE INCIDENCES
OF HONOUR-RELATED VIOLENCE IN THE IMMIGRATION
2
ABOUT ME
Tony Iavarone reignited the debate over honor
killing in Canada which has grown mainly due to
the silence of women, lack of evidence, and
delayed legal punishment. To curb such
incidences, he is embracing society to bring
equal rights for both men and women. People
engaged in such violence must be punished under
the grounds of law and give justice to a victim.
3
Honor killing is considered the most extreme
form of abuse, ranging from social isolation to
insulting, coercion, and forced marriage under
the guise of restoring a familys honor. The
practice has mainly been witnessed in families
and communities where male dominance and
superiority are promoted through social and
economic structures. Despite all the arguments
and evidence of people involved in honor-based
violence and crime, it is considered a legal
punishment. The legal system doesnt take
defamation as a punishable offense however, the
so-called loss of honor doesnt appear as a
crime in any court of law. While no community is
free from violence against women, honor-based
violence cases are frequently reported in
immigration where women's emancipation is a
common phenomenon.
4
Honor killing is a pre-planned response to
the daughter or any female member of the family
who has violated the familys honor in the eyes
of the community and seems to offer an objective
to capture this extreme form of violence.
Tony Iavarone Hamilton says rather than
being understood as domestic violence, honor
killing becomes a sign of immigrant
backwardness. Addressing this form of violence
requires taking politicization in the migration
context into account to attend discussions of
racialisation and stigmatisation.

TONY IAVARONE HAMILTON
Increasing incidences of honor killing lead him
to argue for an understanding of honor-based
violence as a form of gendered crime that
unfolds intersections of gender, religion, race,
and immigrant-receiving societys cultural,
political, and social practices. In Canada, men
and women are considered equal under the
law. Canadas generosity does not go beyond
barbaric cultural practices that tolerate honor
killings, forced marriage, spousal abuse, or
other gender-based violence. Those guilty of
such crimes are punished under Canadas criminal
laws.

Honor Killing as Culturally and Socially
Embedded Practice
  • Much of the political work in the content of
    honor killing emphasises specific regressive
    understandings of culture. Tony Iavarone
    encourages people to take culture as a process
    of meaning-making, not as a monolithic,
    deterministic medium. At the same time, meanings
    differ within communities so this approach to
    culture provides a fine-grained understanding of
    violence, family relations, and gender. Members
    of majority and minority groups across immigrant
    societies give meaning to family configurations,
    gender relations, and immigration experience.

Legal Responses Prevention for Honor- Based
Violence
TONY IAVARONE HAMILTON
Prevention of honor killing involves interrupting
threatened violence but also bringing change in
practices and social relations that aware people
through educational and social service programs.
If a woman is at risk of honor-related violence,
social workers can provide protection such as
shelter and alert to the indicators of
threatened violence. While prevention and
protection involve social policy development,
prosecution puts the notion of honor- based
crime in the legal domain. This involves
enhancing knowledge among service providers and
building effective bridges between policy and
social service providers who can intervene and
make wise decisions in family affairs.

CONCLUSION
Honor-related violence is a complex phenomenon
linked to gender abuse in the form of cultural
and social perspectives. Tony Iavarone
Hamilton says violence against women in immigrant
communities needs to be addressed in relation to
the background of immigration to a new country as
well as immigrant-focused countrys integration
policies and response to gender violence.
