Le crime d’honneur au Liban

Abstract : This thesis is a research study on “Honour Crime in Lebanon”. Honour crime is a social phenomenon that emerges from the practices of blood revenge. It is an international phenomenon that retains specificities relating to the culture in which it is practiced and admitted. The literature mentions several conceptions of honour. We explore here sexual honour and the crime committed in its name against a victim who is a woman. The purpose of our research is thus the crime of honour committed by a man on a female relative, presumed to have disgraced her family by her misconduct. This, in the contemporary Lebanese context.We begin by establishing the cultural, legal and anthropological context of the notion of honour in Lebanon. A review of the statistics on the incidences of honour crimes in the same context supports the literature.In a second part, we explore a possible psychoanalytic reading of the concept of honour, in the light of Jacques Lacan's teaching and we try to formulate a metapsychology of the concept. A third and final part allows us to refocus research so far revolving around psychoanalytic anthropology, on the clinical field, through the words of seven subjects incarcerated for the reasons of honour that they claim. The work concludes on the emptiness of the notion of honour at the crossroads of the legal, social and subjective fields that help dialectize it
