Tearfund believe that modelling certain behaviours is essential if we are to see violent conflict transformed in each context. These behaviours act as a sort of DNA for all of our peacebuilding work:
- A focus on relationships
- A readiness to show hospitality
- A willingness to reach out to and welcome those that are different
- A desire to be creative
- A determination to work with and empower local people
This resource describes the key strands of this DNA and offers a series of questions to ponder. Exploring these questions will encourage people to reflect on the way that they do things, ask themselves questions and adjust their behaviour.
