Tearfund-CCCW Project on the Churches’ Responses to Conflicts
The CCCW are in partnership with Tearfund on a 6 month research project to gain a deep understanding of the current roles of local churches in settings of protracted conflict.
The research is to identify
a) the impact of conflict on the local church;
b) how and why churches choose to engage in response to conflict;
c) the roles and practices churches take on in responding within their communities and conflicts; and
d) the churches’ own perspectives on opportunities, constraints and barriers.
The Research Associate, Marjorie Gourlay, from University of St Andrew’s, works with the principal investigator of the project, the Director of CCCW, Dr Muthuraj Swamy, who supervises the overall project.
