New programme "Men's Roles and Responsibilities in Ending Gender Based Violence."
This project will examine, through a variety of forums, the issues facing men and women regarding gender-based violence. By surveying and synthesizing the theories, issues, practices and experiences of practitioners, experts, policy-makers and academics working in this area, this programme will enable us to make policy recommendations and create training materials for individuals and organizations working to end gender-based violence.

The first major event will be a panel discussion at the Commission on the Status of Women entitled "Racism, Class and Masculinity: the Global Dimensions of Gender-based Violence." This will be followed up with a bulletin board discussion, a virtual seminar series, papers, and more through the GAINS website:, as well as at : For further information on the CSW panel discussion, please see the attached document.
