About The Conference

The King Fahd Center for Middle East Studies, in conjunction with the University of Arkansas School of Law, presents an international symposium addressing the current issues of honor killings, forced marriage, and other honor-based acts of violence.  Honor-based violence is a prevalent but largely invisible problem in the West.  This conference will bring together speakers who are confronting honor-based violence from a range of disciplines.
