Adamakis: in fact we find that forced marriage and honour-based violence are strongly associated. For instance, a girl considered 'dishonoured' may be forced into a marriage against her wishes which is intended to restore 'honour' or which can even be used as a form of punishment - i.e. by forcing marriage with an ineligible or violent man. Furthermore, a great deal of HBV relates to an individual's refusal of an arranged marriage, and attempting to force marriage can be part of this response. Forced marriage and HBV are commonly found together, as Jasvinder Sanghera of Karma Nirvana which supports women facing forced marriage and HBV has observed.
