Publication of paper on why men join the men's rights movement in Malta

My co-authored research article with Christabelle Caruana 'Why do men join the men's rights movement in Malta ' has been published in peer-reviewed journal Interface - A journal for and about social movements

This article explores the reasons why men join the Men’s Rights Movement (MRM) in Malta, the southernmost and smallest member state of the European Union. In particular, reference is made to the Association for Men’s Rights (AMR). For this purpose, a qualitative research method has been adopted, whereby activists within AMR were interviewed to discuss their experiences and the reasons why they joined the organisation. The Weberian concept of verstehen is therefore the main methodological inspiration of this study.
