SBS has been leading campaigns against forced marriage, honour-based violence and others cultural forms of harm since 1999 when we joined a Home Office Working Group which produced the first ever state report into the problem in the UK. Since then, our campaigns have led to the Forced Marriage (Civil) Protection Act and statutory guidance on these matters, enabling countless women to obtain protection. Our campaigns have also highlighted discriminatory immigration and other state practices, including cuts in public spending and specialist services that threaten the gains that have been made.
