In this context she supports Oxfam GB programmes, staff and partners, in developing and implementing policies, strategies and plans through which Oxfam contributes to the realisation of women's rights.
Ines maintains links and is affiliated with various academic institutions and women's organisations. She is a member of the Advisory Committee of the Gender and Development network in the UK, and of AWID (the Association for Women's Rights in Development).
