    Abstract

    i. This report focuses on violences, especially men’s interpersonal violences, in keeping with the main themes in the Co-ordination Action on Human Rights Violation.
    ii. The gendered study of violence has not been a high priority in research in Finland until recently.
    iii. The most important research initiative in relation to men’s violences has been the Academy of Finland “Targeted Call”: Gender, Power and Violence (2000-2004).
    iv. Recent research has emphasised the gendered nature of violence, especially men’s violence to women; there appears to be an increase in approaches that bring together materialist and discursive analyses of these violences.
    v. The most important policy intervention have been the National Programme for the Prevention of Prostitution and Violence Against Women (1998-2002, and a number of legal reforms in violence against women, sexual violence and trafficking, that have generally sought to increase safety.
