Tearfund is committed to promoting peace and reconciliation, supporting activities that impact positively upon situations of conflict while safeguarding staff and project participants (Tearfund’s Quality Standards).

Tearfund aims to take a conflict-sensitive approach in all its work and has developed a number of resources to help conflict-sensitive programming, which is especially important in emergency response work. Tearfund has also produced some guidance on how to promote peace at the community level, which may be more appropriate to longer-term development programmes.
