Masculinities and Armed Conflict Annotated Bibliography

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

In the Consortium’s view, “gender,” in policy communities, is too often taken to simply mean “women,” neglecting both gendered power relations and men and masculinities.  This annotated bibliography aims to facilitate a conversation on gender and armed conflict that examines men and masculinities, as well as the structural differences in power that shape how both men and women participate in war and peacebuilding. Its topics include peacekeeping, militarism, sexualities, sexual violence against men, occupation and imperialism, nationalism, small arms, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration, post-conflict reconstruction, warrior culture, and male youth.
