2nd MenEngage Global Symposium


MenEngage, a global alliance of organizations working with men and boys for gender equality is organizing the 2nd MenEngage Global Symposium in Delhi in November 2014. The overall theme of the Symposium is ‘Men and Boys for Gender Justice’ and encompasses a holistic approach to understanding the implications of masculinities in different domains and disciplines of development and social justice related action in a globalizing world.

We invite those concerned about gender, masculinities, social justice and development issues around the world whether:

• researcher, practitioner, activist or advocate

• working in low, middle or high income country settings, or in fragile states

• working with marginalised communities and populations, or

• at the international level

to share their research, experiences, reflections and understandings through individual oral or poster presentations or through pre-formed, self-organised sessions around any of the seven tracks of the symposium. The presentations can draw upon four dimensions:

• Theory, concepts, reflections

• Research and evidence

• Practice, Experience, Activism

• Scaling up, policy, advocacy
