Project dldl/ድልድል is a project funded by UK Research and Innovation and is dedicated to the development and strengthening of religio-culturally sensitive domestic violence alleviation systems in East Africa and the UK.

The Project dldl/ድልድል Annual Conference 2022, which is co-organised with project partner EMIRTA/እምርታ Research, Training and Development Institute, will bring together religious, secular, government and non-governmental stakeholders working to address domestic violence in Ethiopia and internationally to facilitate the communication of new evidence and to promote cross-disciplinary and cross-sectoral knowledge exchange and collaborations. It will also provide the platform for the project team, partner organisations and collaborators to share their activities, findings and lessons with a more international audience, facilitating knowledge-exchange and evidence-building.

The conference will feature numerous panels with presenters from different parts of Ethiopia and internationally, and a series of workshops delivered by international specialists from the UK, USA, Kenya and other countries. The conference will culminate in a livestreamed roundtable discussion which will bring prominent feminist and religious organisations, government officials and international specialists to explore a better integration pathway for religious, feminist and state resources to respond to domestic violence in Ethiopia and internationally.


The conference will take place in Inter Luxury Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia with international guests travelling to Ethiopia and many international speakers presenting online to achieve two-way knowledge exchange and learning with their Ethiopian counterparts. In accordance with the project’s commitment to making accessible all its activities and outputs, most conference sessions will also be made available online.
