"WHERE ARE THE BOYS: A CONVERSATION AROUND SEXUAL AND GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE IN CONFLICT SETTINGS AND FRAGILE STATES"


JGG held a roundtable event called "Where are the boys: A conversation around sexual and gender-based violence in conflict settings and fragile states".  During the talk, the following questions were addressed:

Does focusing on boys detract from gains made on women and girls' issues? 
Does conflict transform gender norms, the definition of masculinity and the pathways from boyhood to manhood? If so, what are the implications for violence prevention and stability? 
Is there a divide between policy and programming and how can we address the gaps? 
How do we address sexual violence against boys in contexts where international standards conflict with cultural norms?
