Samandráttur á enskum av verkætlanarlýsingini:
“The aim of this project is – against the background of recent developments in international research on masculinity and gender, and political investigations on the European level – to focus on the “brake factors” that are hindering the achievement of gender equality. At present, existing work on gender equality and masculinity often ‘blames’ men for their lack of awareness and reflexivity. In effect, gender equality is often viewed as a problem of men. However, more information is needed to explore men’s specific needs and responsibilities, to understand how gender equality is a problem for men. We will organize our engagement with these questions through four different fields including the family, work, the media and education. The purpose of the network is to generate new insights, develop new knowledge and to identify interventions to address existing and more recent manifestations of gender inequalities. The network will be organized in six work packages. The aim of the discussions in the work packages is to contribute to creating links between different research groups, gather material (statistics and qualitative studies), and to initiate the work with a Nordic project/program application. The meetings and workshops will be organized in terms of presentations of the knowledge base on the particular area/subject in each country. These presentations will lead on to discussions on how to develop research questions, methodological approaches, and conceptual tools.”
