[T]he majority of men find themselves dispensable, with no meaningful role and no stake in the future. For men (unlike for women, for whom gender transformation is actively being canvassed by the international community) there is no space, other than reformist Islam, to discuss the implications, hence few alternative trajectories for men to achieve manhood.
The impact of war on Somali men, from the Rift Valley Institute, examines how 20 years of war has impacted men and ideas of masculinity in Somalia. Based on a series of interviews with both Somali men and women the report explores how ideas have changed and what this means for the future.
