The curriculum model was developed jointly by the HIAS regional area on Gender Equality and Gender-Based Violence, in association with civil society organizations in Colombia, Panama and Venezuela and was validated while working with groups of young and adult men in 2021. The curriculum model is a conceptual and methodological tool for direct work with men and masculinities in HIAS. It is based on feminism, adopts an intersectional perspective, and includes a gender transforming approach by creating a space for reflection and exchange with refugee, displaced and migrant men, and host communities. It is based on a theory of change and focuses on three types of violence: early and forced marriage and unions, intimate partner violence, and sexual violence.
