A Peacemaker Integrity Accord

As a guest in your country not our own, we undertake to be respectful of culture, religions, just laws, human rights and the dignity of all persons.

We believe in an identity at the level of global citizen, valuing the truth, valuing peace and above all the relief of suffering and the reduction of conflict.

We will be open and transparent on how we would undertake to deliver our agreed mandate and in our activities.

We will, in an environment of differences or conflict, act from a position of neutrality, a commitment to speaking the truth, to promoting the ethics of care and justice, the relief of suffering and the reduction of conflict.

In our relationships, we commit to the use of lawful and non-violent methods and language.  We will engage in non-threatening relationships that are comfortable to our client states or involved parties.

We will seek to do no harm or be complicit in harm in any form.

In operating from a position of neutrality, we will not take sides, or become a party to the conflict in any manner that would put us at risk from either side or involved parties.  We must to be able to talk to all parties and be trusted and be safe.

We will not condone violence or hate in any form, and will not endorse any hateful, angry, confrontative or accusative language from any involved party.

Involved parties as a minimum agree to provide for our safety, and respect our commitments above.

Involved parties agree to be willing to make an effort towards non violent communication and peaceful dialogue.

Involved parties agree, even unilaterally, to do what they are able to do towards the relief of suffering and the reduction of conflict.
