On November 11-12 last year, the Project dldl/ድልድል Annual Conference was held in Addis Ababa in partnership with EMIRTA Research, Training and Development Centre (እምርታ). The conference focused on the nexus ‘Domestic Violence – Gender – Faith: Promoting Integrated and Decolonial Approaches to Domestic Violence Cross-culturally’ and sought to promote a better integration of theological and religious perspectives in gender-sensitive work on domestic violence and abuse, facilitate a bridging of different theoretical frameworks and approaches to achieve a more integrated lens through which to appraise the issue of domestic violence and abuse and to identify appropriate responses by means of working collaboratively, and contribute to a diversification of knowledge production in the area of domestic violence and abuse to achieve genuine knowledge sharing from the so-called Global South to the so-called Global North. The conference created a platform for diverse knowledge from across the world to be shared on topics such as: Bangladeshi IPV survivors’ experiences in the UK, honour-based violence in Somalian literature, Zambian traditional marriage counsellors, interventions in refugee camps in Kenya and Bangladesh, indigenous women’s customary institutions in the Ethiopian Oromo community, mental health and spirituality in Ghana, intersections of Gender-Based Violence and faith at a Canadian university, family interventions in Rwanda, interpretations of Qur’anic verses of wife treatment, and many other relevant and inspiring topics. Readers can now delve deeper into some of the rich presentations made on the day by accessing the newly published open access Conference Proceedings. The proceedings feature nine full papers published in the order of the presentations given at the conference.
