This article analyses how efforts to combat «honour-related» violence are linked to and reproduce nationalist ideas. On the basis of theories that discuss the concept of nation and conceptions of belonging and origins I investigate how notions about Swedish values and gender are central in school staffs discussions and understanding of honour-related violence. The empirical material is based on documentary material, participant observations and interviews with welfare staff working at different compulsory schools and colleges of further education in the county of Östergötland in Sweden. The analysis underline the fact that notions of «us» and «the others» are ambiguous and in no way homogenous. It shows how «honour-related» violence is dissociated from Swedishness and how this defines borderlines between those who belong to the nation and those who do not belong.
