This pane is part of the 2021 #ResponsibleTogether Campaign.

Join us for a conversation with Mohammad, Luay and Andrew, three men who migrated from the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region to Europe. 

During the panel, we will discuss 

  • their experiences of being MENA men living in Europe,
  • what made them want to look critically at their masculinity and male identities, and
  • what they are doing to challenge gender stereotypes in their communities.

Participants will hear personal stories of critical awakening, male privilege and discrimination, getting a small insight into the male migrant experience in Europe.


Andrew Moussa is a German Egyptian journalist. He has a bachelor's degree in journalism from Egypt and a Master in Digital Journalism from the Hamburg Media School.
