While there is stubborn persistence in some aspects of men and masculinities — most obviously in men’s domination of the use of violence — there have also been major historical changes in some forms of men’s practices. Moreover, men and masculinities are set within changing policy contexts. Changing gender relations both constitute governments and other policy-making institutions, and provide tasks for governmental, partnership and third sector agencies to deal with. In this sense governments and other policy institutions can be seen as both part of the problem and part of the solution.
