Hard Struggles in Times of Change: A Qualitative Study on Masculinities and Gender-based Violence in Contemporary China

The research on GBV through the lenses of masculinity is scarce. This qualitative research, supported by UNFPA China and Partners for Prevention, was undertaken as part of the Asia-Pacific regional study on GBV – the UN Multicountry Study on Men and Violence. It aims to understand the links between the dominant notions of masculinity (‘what it means to be a man’) and the GBV occurrence in China. The qualitative ndings complement data generated from the quantitative research and contribute to building a comprehensive evidence base for effective programming and advocacy to eliminate GBV in China.
