Abstract [en]

Iraqi refugees face considerable challenges when migrating to countries where individual freedom has greater priority than the group-oriented honor culture. In-depth qualitative interviews were conducted with Iraqi male and female refugees residing in Sweden regarding honor, current well-being, and experiences of intimate partner violence. Feelings of psychological distress and worry about the future were frequently expressed. Men feared loss of status and unemployment, whereas women had more positive expectations regarding increased autonomy. Upholding honor norms and power shifts within the relationship could potentially lead to family conflicts and/or violence, with increased risk for adverse mental and somatic health consequences.
