Cardiff Council in partnership with Henna Foundation are hosting a free conference on 'honour' related abuse within families. The conference will be held in Cardiff City Hall on the 4 March 2008 from 9am.

The title of the conference is 'Pressures, Risks & Consequences of Honour" Related Abuse within Families; The Shackles of 'Honour' Codified Behaviour'.

The conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to listen, engage, question and exchange discussions with internationally recognised professionals and champions in the field of 'honour' based violence.

For practitioners who are new to this area of family law, the conference is a chance to bridge knowledge gaps and provide an understanding of 'honour' related abuses within families.

Speakers at the conference will include Nazir Afzal, OBE, director of the Crown Prosecution Service, London West; Shahien Taj, director of the Henna Foundation; Jagdeesh Singh, brother of honour victim Surjit Athwal and Wayne Ives, head of the Forced Marriage Unit at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, among others.
