International Conference on Engaging Men & Boys (EMB)
7–8 June 2018 | Basel, Switzerland
Jointly organized by IAMANEH Switzerland and Swiss Agency for Depelopment and Cooperation (SDC)
MEN MOVE! All over the world, important men's initiatives
questioning gender stereotypes and embracing new masculinities are being
launched. Men wish to become gender-equal partners, caring fathers and
just members of society. Engaging and working with men and boys is
essential for achieving gender equality. This approach has also produced
tangible results in the promotion of sexual and reproductive health and
rights, and the reduction of gender-based violence over recent years.
Yet, men still need to move! Transforming gender roles must extend
beyond personal relationships. For dominant power positions to shift and
the structural patriarchy to be challenged, institutions, gov- ernments
and their leaders and authorities must adopt gender transformative
approaches that are directed at and embrace both women and men.
