This study contributes to a better understanding of masculinities and gender norms in Liberia and how these could be addressed to promote more positive forms of masculinities. It furthermore assesses how gender norms impact sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). The study has been commissioned by the Swedish Embassy, with input from and the support of UN Women, in Monrovia. The core research team included team leader Marie Nilsson from Selima Consulting, and Joseph D. Howard and Francis S. Konyon from the Centre for Justice and Peace Studies, Monrovia, the Secretariat of MenEngage Liberia.
