Keywords: Masculinities | Forced Displacement | Subjectivity | Gender.

This article demonstrates the lack of academic and political attention regarding the situation of forcibly displaced men in Colombia. It analyzes the way the problem of displacement reconfigures masculinities at the same time that it generates tensions, reactions, and transformations in the way that men think about their own gender. It alludes to the social implications of this situation, encouraging us to think about the topic from a psychosocial perspective in order to design useful accompaniment strategies to move towards gender equity in this area.
