Exploring the Role of Men and Masculinities in Papua New Guinea in the 21st century: How to Address Violence in Ways that Generate Empowerment for Both Men and Women


The research was commissioned by Caritas, Australia, as an attempt to explore the role of men and masculinities as a possible cause of gender-based violence, and therefore as the key to a solution. The intended outcomes include: an overview of men’s roles and masculinities in PNG society in the 21st century (how and why this has changed); what both men and women view as possible strategies in addressing the link between masculinities and violence. Can these strategies realistically be employed?; and identification of who (what agencies or CBO’s both within and outside the Church network) would be ideally placed to facilitate/implement possible strategies/initiatives towards reducing violent behaviour by working with men.
