SPOTLIGHT

Fair & Equitable Initiative

The Fair & Equitable Initiative is a new JLI project that will re-envision how JLI conducts its joint learning, research, and partnerships. By shifting power and leadership to newly created Regional Learning Hubs, JLI will support local actors to define and lead their own evidence agendas, challenging the power imbalances between local communities and international actors on questions of research and aid priorities. Learn more about our progress on building Regional Hubs, plans for our Theological Dialogues on Decolonization, and the Fair & Equitable Initiative Webinar series.
