The latest news, stories, reports, opinion and analysis from Oxfam Policy & Practice staff around the world.
Moussa leads regionally on social protection, livelihoods, and economic development for the UK Poverty Programme. He is also leading on Oxfam's work in response to the economic downturn, public spending cuts, and their impacts in relation to UK poverty.
He previously worked as a policy adviser for the Equality Challenge Unit, advising higher education institutions on equality and diversity issues, specialising in religion, belief and disability, and as a researcher for the Social Market Foundation think tank, publishing on welfare reform, education and volunteering policy.
In the UK, homelessness on the rise and the number of people relying on food parcels has doubled in the past year. Our research reveals that deep-seated inequality and draconian spending cuts are resulting in the UK's poorest being the hardest hit.
It's been billed as a 'Robin Hood' budget but, as Moussa Haddad reports, today's budget does little to help the poorest in society who have been hit the hardest by the cuts to welfare and public services.
