UK international development actors – from government to private sector and NGOs – can play a key role in fighting extreme economic inequality to beat poverty in developing countries. This paper shares key principles, policies and programmes that have emerged from Oxfam’s work with partners around the world in recent years, so as to encourage a sector-wide response to the inequality crisis. There will be no end to poverty unless we can close the gaps between rich and poor and between men and women, and adopt a development agenda based on feminist principles and a human economy.
