520 |a In 2005 Turkey introduced a set of legal reforms that were aimed at curbing incidents of honour killings and punishing those responsible. But in the years since this reform, there are still reports of gender-based violence and such honour killings - in which someone (usually a woman) is killed due to the perception that they have brought 'dishonour' upon their family or community - are still taking place.
