Critical Studies on Men and Masculinities (CSMM), as well as policy activism with a focus on men on masculinities, have developed significantly over the past 30 or so years. The emphasis on feminist questions of power and inequality in relation to men’s behavior and formations of masculinity/masculinities has impacted on research and policy in different fields, ranging from international relations and war, to culture, sport, violence, crime and suicide.
