Men’s use of violences, of various kinds and forms, is a clear social problem. This chapter begins by considering how violence and men’s practices are addressed across Europe in academic studies, statistical sources, and law and policy. This includes a discussion of some implications arising from the transnational picture in terms of which forms of men’s violences are dealt with, or not dealt with, in research, policy and practice in the various countries, and why this is so. We then consider the overlaps that seem to occur in the way the theme of violence intersects with the other three key themes of home and work, social exclusion, health. Finally, arising from the foregoing analysis, the chapter summarises some key recommendations to policy-makers for challenging violences in relation to men’s practices.
