Gender equality and gender relations in Azerbaijan: current trends and opportunities

Resource Date: 2018

The International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) was conducted in Azerbaijan from April to July 2016 and aimed to understand men’s practices and attitudes to gender equality. The study consisted of both a quantitative survey, as well as a qualitative component consisting of semi-structured interviews with respondents living in urban areas. The qualitative research focused on exploring men’s and women’s gender roles, beliefs, and perceptions in terms of sexual and reproductive health-related decision-making (including son preference), intimate partner violence, early marriage, and family planning.
