A Quick Look at CIMEL and INTERIGHTS 'Honour' Crimes Project
The CIMEL (Centre of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law) and INTERIGHTS Honour Crimes Project attempts to combat crimes of honor through “data, documentation, networking and development of strategies.” The joint project formed in 2000 to share information and facilitate cooperation among lawyers, activists, academics, and other interested parties on the issues of honor crimes and forced marriages. In support of this mission, the project has created a website containing a wealth of information. The “Bibliography on ‘Crimes of Honour’” consists of two regularly updated sections: an annotated bibliography of published material from books and journals, and case summaries from honor crime litigation around the globe. Realizing that many individuals and groups were working without knowledge of each other, the project created a global directory of the contact information for people and organizations working in the field, as well as descriptions of their activities. To facilitate information sharing and research, the abstracts and/or full-texts of scholarly and topical articles are provided, as are pertinent news reports. This is an excellent site to assist researchers interested in the area of honor crimes, forced marriages, and women’s human rights.
