Policy and Practice at Oxfam

Oxfam’s cutting-edge thinking, research and programming tools are shaping the future of policy and gender justice advocacy.

Policy and Practice is a dedicated site for policy-makers, practitioners, researchers, donors and academics to access knowledge, evidence and ideas from the work of Oxfam and the communities and organizations we partner with around the world. Our aim is to share learning and knowledge and build stronger support for policies and ideas rooted in gender justice.
