Poverty and Inequality in Contemporary Russia
Oxfam has more than 60 year's experience supporting people to overcome poverty the world over. Since 2003, Oxfam has been working in the Russian Federation, where it has applied its international knowledge to work with civil society partners from Murmansk to Vladivostok and many places in between. From 2012, advocacy on pro-poor social policy has become central to Oxfam's work in Russia. This briefing outlines Oxfam's analysis of poverty and inequality in Russia and introduces Oxfam's policy recommendations, which will be developed further as work in this area rolls out.
