The JLI Ending Violence Against Children (EVAC) Learning Hub brings together academics, policy experts, and practitioners to review and analyse the knowledge base regarding the multiple roles of faith and faith actors to influence or end violence against children, in line with SDG 16.2. Currently, existing data is not standardized and there is no central repository or systematic review. The hub will help overcome evidence gaps regarding faith communities role in violence against children and help inform and improve policy and practice.

 

Meeting objectives:

  • Member introductions
  • Exchange information about members’ interests and work relating to the Hub topic.
  • Discuss and prioritize research themes
  • Review and discuss Hub Terms of Reference and concept note
  • Updates on faith in relation to ending violence  in the context  of current policy environment
  • Discuss how the hub will work together and next steps

 

The Ending Violence Against Children Hub is a part of the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities Learning Hubs, which narrow the focus of enquiry about evidence for faith groups’ activities and contributions to community wellbeing to selected sub-topics. For more information, see the Ending Violence Against Children Hub draft Terms of Reference and concept note.
