This technical paper, produced by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), is designed as a reference tool to assist OSCE executive structures in increasing the engagement of men and boys in gender equality initiatives within the OSCE region. It invites reflection upon masculinities and the many positive roles that men and boys can and do provide to bridge continuing gender inequalities.
Gender equality is high on the agenda of the OSCE as it is for international organizations and national governments. The primary focus of this resource is the experiences of the OSCE participating States and is intended to promote greater thought about how to increase the engagement of men and boys in gender equality initiatives in the OSCE region. The document focuses on good practices and areas in which efforts are being made to involve men and boys in gender equality work, both in generally promoting equitable relations between men and women and, most often, through projects in specific priority areas where inequalities persist.
