The Declaration of Humanity focuses on the importance of the role of faith leaders and faith communities in highlighting violations that occur against women in conflict zones. It highlights the reality that over 80% of the world’s population sees itself as having some form of religion or belief, and that subsequently the place of religious teaching and accountability is one of great importance and influence.

While religion is often seen as a cause of conflict, this is one very clear example through which faithful and responsible leadership can transform social understanding on this matter and can present faith and belief as a real solution to a real problem, safeguarding those most vulnerable. The matter of returning survivors and their acceptance among their faith communities is also an incredibly important one that must be addressed, especially in relation to the stigma that follows and impacts survivors even after their traumatic experiences have come to an end.

The talk is part of the SOAS Centre of World Christianity seminar series. The SOAS Centre of World Christianity promotes the study of the historic and modern contexts of Christianity in Africa and Asia.
