Masculinity and Violence Against Women Among Lebanese and Iraqis in Lebanon
With the support of the IMC, ABAAD conducted in 2012 a study with Lebanese residents as we as Iraqi refugees residing in Lebanon with the aim of giving a clear and accurate image of women and men's perceptions in general, their opinions, their attitudes toward their roles in society, and their perceptions of masculinity, and violence against women.
It also attempts to understand how men can be better involved in solving this problem, in addition to the role of nongovernental organisations in this regard.
The study's outcome provides concerned parties with substantial information to assess the core of the problem and its stimulus in order to prevent future similar GBV incidents.
It also paved the way to build better strategies that will help fight domestic violence while involving men in the process.
