Fostering Caring Masculinities

The conference Fostering Caring Masculinities takes place in Girona in Spain from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 October 2006.
This is the final conference of the project FOCUS: Fostering Caring Masculinities. The project aims to examine and improve men?s opportunities for balancing work and private/family life in order to encourage the preparedness of men to take over caring tasks. To reach this goal the project will focus on companies' framework conditions to perceive and include men as actors and target groups in equality policies. This trans national project is a cooperation of Germany, Iceland, Slovenia, Spain and Norway.

At the conference the researchers will present the national and comparative results of the project and suggest future guidelines for fostering caring masculinities.

The target groups of the conference are employers, researchers, politicians, journalists, gender equality consultants and representatives from social partners such as trade unions
