The PaRD Gender Equality and Empowerment Work-stream (SDG 5) commissioned this research from the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities (JLI) . The report was prepared under the auspices of the JLI’s Gender-based Violence (GBV) Learning Hub authored by Dr Elisabet le Roux at Stellenbosch University, Unit for Research and Development Research.

The report shares what we know considering research on religion, development and GBV in the last couple of decades, where current gaps exist and gives current recommendations regarding the development of a research agenda.
