16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

As the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign takes off, it is an opportune time to revisit the role of faith and theology in addressing domestic violence.

The article discusses the role of faith, theology and the clergy in the experience of domestic violence and its resolution with reference to a literature review completed recently together with Professor Parveen Ali and previous long-term anthropological research in Ethiopia. The second part presents the work of project dldl/ድልድል with Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo clergy in Ethiopia, the workshop content and approach used and some preliminary assessment findings.
