The latest news, stories, reports, opinion and analysis from Oxfam Policy & Practice staff around the world.
Caroline is Editor of Oxfam's international journal Gender & Development. The journal is published by Routledge and aims to support development workers to integrate gender justice and women's rights into their work. It publishes the experience of policymakers, practitioners, and women's rights activists, many of whom have never previously published their work.
Caroline has a PhD, examining the impact of a microfinance project on Ethiopian craftsworker women's poverty, livelihoods and empowerment. She has over fifteen years experience in Oxfam GB, with spells as a gender policy and programme adviser, and as a policy researcher. She started her career off in Lesotho, working as a journalist, for a mineworkers' trade union association, and a children's village, before setting up and project managing a UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund)-sponsored popular women's education/media project, Shoeshoe.
