Representatives of grassroot organisations that engage men and boys in combating violence against women met FRA in Vienna on 17 June.

Participants of the meeting discussed the findings of FRA’s violence against women survey report, with a focus on the survey results which relate to perpetrators of such violence. Strategies and promising practices which involve men were discussed and possible follow up initiatives by the organisations were formulated. FRA facilitated the discussions and provided evidence-based advice drawing on its work in this area.
