This report summarises the findings of the research on men and masculinities in a globalising Viet Nam carried out by the Institute for Social Development Studies (ISDS) in 2019 – 2020. It is the first large-scale study on men and masculinities in Viet Nam conducted through a survey and interviews with more than 2,500 working age men, living in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh city, Khanh Hoa, and Hoa Binh.

In carrying out this report, ISDS intended to fill a gap in the knowledge and evidence base on gender norms and women’s economic empowerment in Viet Nam. Research on gender in Viet Nam has focused mainly on women, leaving men out of the picture. The report is seen to inform policies and programmes that support gender equality, men’s health and women’s economic empowerment.
