Ett ifrågasatt offer? : En kvalitativ studie om socionomers uppfattningar kring hedersvåldsutsatta män och socialtjänstens arbete
Sammanfattning: The aim of the study is to understand how social workers perceive causes and consequences of men who have been subjects of honor violence. Furthermore, the study aims to outline the inputs that the clients receive from the social services. The investigation was a series of semi structured interviews with social workers currently operating in the field of domestic violence. The output of the interviews was processed through the theoretical frameworks provided by R.W Connell's theory of hegemonic masculinity, Johan Asplunds notion of social fabrics, and Nils Christies theory of idealized victims, to see how these theories play in their conception of honor violence. The debate of honor violence has been developing for the past twenty years. This prompted the Swedish state to generate a structured approach to preventing and intercepting honor related violence. The problem is that the perspective is biased by the notion that honor violence is "men’s violence against women". Alternative groups of victims have therefore been excluded. The study concludes that social workers believe that men are also a targeted group. Homosexual men or men who suffer from disabilities are often subjects of honor violence according to them. They also think that men assume a binary role in which they suffer honor related violence and inflict it upon others simultaneously. These findings reveal the limitations of the social services to deal with honor violence towards men and how the consequences could be mitigated if they would receive similar inputs to that given to women.
