You and Oxfam, tackling poverty together

Research and reports by Oxfam

Read and download reports undertaken by Oxfam in New Zealand and abroad.

At Oxfam New Zealand, we take a rights-based approach to our development, humanitarian and campaign work. We believe that all people are entitled to decent work and income security and to essential services such as health and education. Everyone should have gender equality, security from conflict and disasters, and be able to participate in social and political life. Below you’ll find a wide selection of reports and research papers on the programming and advocacy that we undertake in order to achieve these aims.
