Critical Studies on Men and Masculinities (CSMM), as well as policy activism with a focus on men on masculinities, have developed significantly over the past 30 or so years. The emphasis on feminist questions of power and inequality in relation to men’s behavior and formations of masculinity/masculinities has impacted on research and policy in different fields, ranging from international relations and war, to culture, sport, violence, crime and suicide.

Yet CSMM and policy have also often overlooked the importance of transnational and geopolitical issues in the context of gender relations. In the wake of global economic instability, manmade climate change and post humanist approaches, there is a need to engage with notions of how men and masculinity/masculinities shape and influence existential threats, as well as to consider the potential scope of CSMM research and policy interventions on a global scale.

This international, interdisciplinary conference, hosted by the Nordic Association for Research on Men and Masculinities (NFMM), in conjunction with the Centre for Feminist Studies (CFS) at Örebro University, will be held over three days, at Örebro University, in June 2017. The aim of the conference is to foster interdisciplinary dialogues between those researching and engaged in political or policy activism around men and masculinities, across different nations, with a view to establishing international collaborations between researchers and practitioners globally.
