International Conference on “Men, Gender and Development”, 7-8 June 2018, Basel, Switzerland

Engaging and working together with men and boys (EMB) is essential for achieving gender equality and serves as a strategy to claim sexual and reproductive rights and to decrease gender based violence. The first conference in Switzerland on Engaging Men and Boys for Gender Equality as a global Challenge was jointly organized by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and IAMANEH Switzerland.

Day 2 of the conference focused in depth on the application of EMB-approaches in the field of gender based violence with a specific emphasis on working with perpetrators and the links between ones’ own experiences of violence and the later exposure to or use of violence. All Survivors Project Executive Director Charu Lata Hogg spoke about men as target group in humanitarian settings.
