Killed by gossip: “Honor killings” of women in the North Caucasus. Report on the results of a qualitative study in the republics of Dagestan, Ingushetia and Chechnya (Russian Federation)

Killed by gossip: “Honor killings” of women in the North Caucasus. Report on the results of a qualitative study in the republics of Dagestan,  Ingushetia and Chechnya (Russian Federation)

An analysis of “honor killings” illustrates that they are motivated not by tradition, custom (adat) or the norms of Sharia law, but rather by the arbitrary and self-styled ambitions of individuals and clans. The practice is borne out of and incited by the pressure of public opinion, gossip, rumors and slander.
