Confronting far-right “masculinities”: Implications for NGOs


Far-right populism is a global phenomenon. Despite differing national and local contexts, what ties these forces together is ethno-nationalism predicated on racialized masculinity narratives. In this article, Alan Greig’s three far-right narratives are discussed: barbarous masculinities of the ethnic “minority”, wounded masculinities of the ethnic “majority”, and misogynistic masculinities of the everyday. Understanding and challenging these narratives is paramount for advancing social justice across many issues development NGOs and others prioritize — including the rights of refugees and migrants, sexual and reproductive freedoms, pluralism, and inclusive societies. Successfully challenging the far-right entails NGOs articulating core values and principles centered on an anti-racist feminism: one that seeks to abolish the social hierarchies and inequalities wrought by neoliberalism.
