The youths LOKK meets in its counseling service are often living somewhere in between collectivistic family structures and the individualistic society surrounding them. Conflict can often arise when the wishes of the youth are incompatible with the expectations of the family. Youths oftentimes want to decide for themselves how to lead their lives, who to marry, what education to choose, etc. At the same time however, these youths are brought up with the concept that the needs and interests of the family are most important.
In other words, there exists an imbalance between the power relations within the family, which is based on gender and age based hierarchies. Conflicts in these families can include social control, pressure, forced marriage, involuntary reeducation trips abroad, violence and threats against youths. Conditions which have oftentimes existed over a longer period of time. Youths and families can consequently experience an enormous distance between the different generations and the expectations they have of each other. This distance can have severe consequences for the parties involved. These consequences can ultimately cost lives.
LOKK has therefore, for several years now, offered counseling by phone and in person, but also offers mediation with families suffering from honour related conflicts.
