"Discrimination discourse is incompatible with hegemonic masculinity"

In an article recently published in the European Social Work Research journal, researchers Anna Rypi, Malin Åkerström and Veronika Burcar Alm attempt to shed light on why young men with an immigrant background who are subjected to violent crimes rarely report the incidents to the police.

The young men who were interviewed mainly portrayed their decisions not to notify the police in the context of a masculinity discourse rather than using a discourse of discrimination, even though the interviewers asked specifically about whether discrimination or trust in the police influenced their decision. The researchers argue that these young men’s accounts reflect their preferred self-presentations, since a dicriminination discourse may be tied to a victim identity that is incompatible with hegemonic masculinity.
