Masculinities and transition in Kazakhstan: Country brief

Masculinities and transition in Kazakhstan: Country brief

In both policy-oriented and scholarly literatures on the gender dimensions of the social and economic transitions in Kazakhstan of the past 30 years, men and their gendered experiences of transitions are scarcely discussed. This brief is based on a larger study (that also includes Egypt, Turkey and Ukraine), which explores how transition in different countries has been experienced by different groups of men, and its impacts on gender relations. It aims to assist the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and other stakeholders to consider ways of engaging men as agents of positive change for gender equality – alongside women and girls – as well as to complement women-focused projects and investments to enhance both the resilience of transitions and equality of opportunity.
