Abstract [en]

In relation to the much noticed honour killings in Sweden the government and the Swedish National Agency for Education have initiated research and also educational initiatives for headmasters and teachers in schools on the subject. We have in cooperation with the Swedish National Agency for Education developed syllabuses and organized short term courses around “Honour-related violence and oppression” and “Sexuality education, relations and values” for mainly headmasters, teachers, students, nurses and counselors working in schools. In light of these experiences we see a great need for developing a knowledge area in social studies subjects on honour-related problems for compulsory school as well as for higher education. Therefore we have initiated a research project with the aim of addressing this challenging question. Useful theoretical perspectives focus on gender, diversity, power, othering and culturalization, as well as inclusion, co-existence and citizenship. Research questions include the overall need for education in these issues in relation to various levels of educations and to various school subjects. Another question focuses on how to develop a research based content of knowledge grounded in an ethical awareness and sensitiveness regarding this controversial issue in social studies subjects. Apart from developing a knowledge area the project strives to highlight good experiences from schools that have experiences working with this issue. Preliminary results from questionnaires and interviews will be analyzed and discussed in this paper.
