Review of research on collective action and engaging men to tackle gender based violence

The aim of this review is to pull together examples of research that shows how collective forms of agency (whether in the form of social movements, coalitions or groups) have made a difference in eliciting positive social change in relation to gender-based violence; and highlights ways in which engaging men and masculinities on gender based violence issues has made a difference.

This document is divided into two sections. The first gives an overview of the key points emerging from the research identified on the above topics. The second is an annotated bibliography which lists and summarises the research. The documents considered include both peer reviewed research and grey literature.
