This page details all the research outputs from the JLI Research Team and the JLI Learning Hubs since our inception. The page is organized first into the reports directly from the Learning Hubs, then publications from the JLI Research Team, and finally a section on JLI conference convening.

Learning Hub Reports and Books

JLI has published nine faith and development-focused thematic scoping studies and several additional reports and a book from the collaboration within learning hubs. This work has generated ground-breaking evidence on the potential for more effective faith engagement across topics such as maternal and child health, community resilience in fragile settings, peace and conflict, community mobilization, refugees and forced migration, and violence against women and children.

Many of these reports have also been translated into evidence-based policy recommendations as well as concrete policy outcomes. See, for example, the Policy Brief and Recommendation to the Global Compact on Refugees.

JLI Research Team Publications

The JLI Research Team also conducts and publishes research, collaborating with organisations and research consultants around the world to investigate the roles of faith actors in humanitarian, development, and peace work. These publications range from research reports to journal articles and blog posts. In 2020, JLI’s Director of Research, Dr Olivia Wilkinson also launched her book Secular and Religious Dynamics in Humanitarian Responsewhich focuses on the role of secular actors in faith engagement.
