Description: A study on the implementation of the "Honour Killings Act" (Criminal Law (Amendment) Act 2004), against the background of the position women hold in Pakistan, where "discrimination against women was formalised by the State and 'legal' impunity for men exploiting and violating women's rights" was the norm.
