New joint WILPF and GENSAC publication looks at masculinities and small arms control
WILPF and the Gender Equality Network for Small Arms Control (GENSAC) have jointly published a new briefing paper: Men and masculinities in gender-responsive small arms control. Authored by Henri Myrttinen and Mia Schöb, the briefing paper focuses on civilian small arms owners and users. It examines the links between masculinities and small arms in more detail, followed by a discussion of how gender should be integrated into small arms programming. It additionally outlines existing approaches to working on masculinities in the context of small arms, and ends with a series of recommendations.
