Currently, we are implementing a 3-phase project aimed at describing the range of approaches used globally to engage men proactively in the prevention of violence against women. This project involves
- An online survey of international violence prevention agencies, and men's and fatherhood organizations to assess worldwide efforts to engage men in violence prevention.
- In-depth interviews with organizations around the world that engage men in violence prevention, to understand their programs and strategies for inviting men into prevention.
- A global survey of men who have attended violence prevention events or who are anti-violence allies, to understand the impact of anti-violence involvement on men as well as the factors that influence men's willingness to get involved in ending violence.
- Worked with Men Engage North America to analyze recent national survey and help build a research infrastructure for the North American network.
- Engaging expectant fathers to prevent violence against women and children. Conducted interviews and focus groups with providers and fathers to identify promising strategies for engaging new and expectant fathers.
