JLI Gender-Based Violence Hub

Recently, the JLI Gender Based Violence (GBV) Hub and the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) have combined efforts in a new iteration of the current Faith and GBV Hub by establishing a secretariat at SVRI for a joint evidence and knowledge platform (hub). This new shift will help mainstream faith-focused GBV research into a wider network and will also broaden and deepen the work of the SVRI membership focus on faith and GBV research.

JLI and SVRI invite you to join the new Hub. JLI/SVRI are also still taking applications for the leadership council through Dec 9 see here for more details.

JLI/SVRI Faith and GBV Hub Event

The JLI/SVRI Faith and GBV Hub will be launched on Dec 2 at 2 pm GMT/ 9 am ET. They’ll have a discussion of growth and impact of faith research and interventions on VAW with Dr Elisabet le Roux and Transforming Masculinities with Prabu Deepan.
