Abstract: This dissertation addresses the widespread lack of substantive, empirically-based data and resources, and the resulting error and gaps in the literature and practice of honor-based violence (HBV) case management and response through 1. The development of several publicly available and non-proprietary resources for researchers and law enforcement and victims’ services providers, including: (1) one of the largest and most inclusive datasets on honor killings available; (2) a revised and clarified definition of honor crimes and multistep process for identifying cases of HBV; and (3) a typology of victims accompanied by exemplary cases and recommendations for case management, and; 2. The application of rigorous methods to not only describe honor killing cases, victims, and perpetrators quantitatively, but to empirically distinguish HBV as a unique form of violence and develop a typology of victims, as well as develop statistical estimates.
