Eighty per cent of the global population aliate with a religion. Personal faith is a driver for change, and religious actors play an important role in shaping norms. It’s important to identify strategies on how to support the progressive voices within religious movements as well as develop strategies on how to work with organisations and individuals who are different from us. This seminar strives to reach a deepened understanding of the role of religion and religious actors in development work for gender equality.
