Analysing the roots of interpersonal violence
CAHRV aims to review and integrate research that addresses the linkages between violence and violent masculinity, on the one hand, and dominance, hierarchy, social inclusion/exclusion, on the other hand. While the project will explore men's experiences as victims (see thematic area 1), it simultaneously will analyse how men create and reproduce hegemonic forms of masculinity and social exclusion, in particular with regard to racism. This issue is of central concern to the agenda of the European Union since the European Commission has sponsored extensive debates about racism and xenophobia, partly as a result of inward migration and the enlargement of the Union eastward.
Sub-network 2 updated the existing data on the European Documention Centre on Men (set up by the previous Framework 5 Network on Men): www.cromenet.org.
