Domestic abuse is an enduring problem in many countries. Efforts to protect victims and raise awareness are having only a limited effect on younger generations of men, a sizeable minority of whom still grow up to become perpetrators. The From Boys to Men Project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to explore why some boys become domestic abuse perpetrators when others do not. The aim of the research is to establish what more can be done to reduce the number of young men who become perpetrators.
This website provides information about the project’s methods and findings. It provides a forum for debate about what more can be done to address domestic abuse. It also provides resources to equip others to conduct research in their own contexts (schools, colleges, youth groups) to enable the identification of victims and potential perpetrators of domestic abuse in order that appropriate intervention might be applied to support those individuals.
