About JLI

An international collaboration on evidence for faith actors’ activities, contributions, and challenges to achieving humanitarian and development goals. Founded in 2012, JLI came together with a single shared conviction: there is an urgent need to build our collective understanding, through evidence, of faith actors in humanitarianism and development.

On January 13, 2022, JLI held a webinar where Dr. Romina Istratii, SOAS University of London, presented on ‘Working with religious communities to address domestic violence in peace and war-time: Insights from project dldl/ድልድል in Ethiopia’. Mr. Henok Hailu Ayele, College of Health Sciences, Department of Psychiatry (Black Lion Hospital), Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia responded followed by a Question and Answer session.

The session was based on Dr. Istratti’s recent short blog essay and a Faith, culture and social norms chapter from her book: Adapting Gender and Development to Local Religious Contexts – A Decolonial Approach to Domestic Violence in Ethiopia.
