A website to achieve impact and knowledge exchange

The website aims to facilitate the impact strategy of the project by serving as a dissemination and knowledge-exchange platform that brings together the different stakeholder groups of this project to promote cross-sectoral and cross-disciplinary learning and the fostering of new collaborations.

The website publishes regular outputs from research, community engagement, and knowledge-exchange activities. It includes a dedicated resources page, which publishes resources intended for clergy, theologians and seminarians, and practitioners and researchers in the area of domestic violence. While many of these resources are specific to the project countries, others have wider relevance and can inform international approaches to the study and alleviation of domestic violence in faith communities.

The project seeks to publish in Amharic and English, although resources are published first in the language that is most accessible to the communities and stakeholders those resources aim primarily to serve.

Building Bridges

Project dldl/ድልድል Annual Conference 2024: Registration OPEN!

The Project dldl/ድልድል Annual Conference for 2024 will be dedicated to the theme of Domestic Violence – Religion – Migration: Integrating cultural and religious diversity in UK domestic violence and abuse services and developing a future roadmap for the sector.

The conference will consist of evidence sharing panels and best practice workshops led by researchers and DVA practitioners and service providers to achieve genuine cross-sectoral knowledge exchange and identify together good practices, new approaches and future priorities and directions in faith-informed and culturally adapted DVA services in the UK and internationally. We would also like to bridge the evidence we have produced in two continents in the past four years, by assisting travel for our Ethiopian partners to the UK, to feed this into conversations intersecting domestic violence, religion and migration.

The conference will also feature keynotes delivered by leading figures in DVA policy and practice, including the Domestic Violence Commissioner in the UK, and a roundtable engaging participants and the public, and is being supported by numerous organisations (featured on our conference page), many of which will contribute actively to the conference.

In the evening of day 1,  Project dldl/ድልድል will also hold a screening of its docudrama ‘Tidar’ (‘Marriage’), an educational film co-produced in Ethiopia and the UK to raise awareness about the role of religious beliefs and faith in domestic violence experiences. You may watch the multilingual trailers on our Vimeo account.

The event is open to everyone. Please register on Eventbrite.
