Abstract:
      This article introduces the work of The European Research Network on Men
      in Europe project, "The Social Problem and Societal Problematisation of
      Men and Masculinities" (2000-2003), funded by the European Commission.
      The Network comprises women and men researchers with range of
      disciplinary backgrounds from Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy,
      Latvia, Norway, Poland, the Russian Federation, and the UK. The article
      describes the aims and objectives, methods and activities of the
      Network, and locates them within critical approaches to men's practices,
      and comparative studies on welfare systems. The Network's initial focus
      is on men's relations to home and work, social exclusion, violences and
      health. Some of findings on the Network's first phase of work, namely
      the review of academic research on men's practices in the ten countries,
      are presented. This is the first of four articles, reviewing critical
      studies on men in the ten countries through different methods and
      approaches.
