Strengthening Gender Equality by Understanding the Role of Masculinities in Security


Share this page     

‘Gender’ is largely understood to be a synonym for ‘women’. Though the connections between masculinities, violence and peace are multiple, policy-makers struggle to engage with the topic.

Working on masculinities yields significant potential to a more transformative approach to violence and peace. The objective of this event is to grow awareness amongst our target audience of different types of masculinities and their relevance to international security policy and practice.

Engaging with expert stakeholders from government, civil society and academia, the event will look into both opportunities and risks associated with integrating masculinities in international security, offering practical recommendations for gender practitioners at the national and international level.  

Join us to attend this discussion with a unique and diverse panel of experts on Thursday, 7 December, starting at 18:00.

Doors will be open as of 17:30. You will receive details on the event location upon registration to the event. Our panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with participants, after which we will host an informal networking reception.
