Oxfam IBIS’ strategic partnership with Danida aims at creating a just world in which all people have equal access to quality education, influence and resources. Together with partners, Oxfam IBIS combats global inequality, discrimination and poverty by directly supporting people and communities and by using ground-level experiences to influence development policy decisions at the local, national, regional and global level. By addressing inequality – in and through education, participation, gender justice, governance, economic access, employment, etc. – Oxfam IBIS is contributing effectively to all Danida ‘strategic points of orientation’, the SDGs prioritised by Danida, and the Policy for Danish Support to Civil Society. Through a strong, results-oriented approach, Oxfam IBIS works for inclusive sustainable growth, freedom, democracy and development. Overall thematic objective - EDUCATION for Active Citizenship: Civil society organisations and alliances are strengthened to claim and exercise the universal right to quality education and lifelong learning opportunities. This empowers poor and marginalised children, youth and adults to become active citizens, enabling political, economic, and social change. In Redistribution, Inequality and Growth (2014), the IMF recommends redistributive investment in education through progressive taxation, combined with labour market reforms, to promote growth. Education is a powerful socialising instrument – it can socialise children into existing unequal power relations or into inclusion and empowerment as active and responsible citizens. Oxfam IBIS promotes equal access to quality education and governance structures that support equality and accountability, as a vehicle for sustainable democratic development. Education interventions will contribute to transforming unequal power structures into equitable social and political relations, where women and young people are empowered and can take the lead and participate in decision-making that affects their lives and their communities. Overall thematic objective - ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL JUSTICE: Civil society organisations and alliances – particularly those involving women, youth and indigenous people – gain the power and legitimacy to hold governments to account. This leads to more sustainable development, improving economic and social justice. Oxfam IBIS’s partnerships and programmes prioritise promoting social and economic justice including domestic resource mobilisation combined with democratic governance, progressive and pro-poor investments and public spending. Ensuring accountable, transparent, progressive and gender-sensitive spending of government revenues is important for realising economic, social and political rights of all. Oxfam IBIS empowers civil society to conduct local, national and international advocacy to end tax evasion and avoidance, stop capital flight from developing countries and promote participation and democratic reforms, economic redistribution and transparency and accountability of public and private sector. Thematic objective – PEACEBUILDING, RIGHTS AND INCLUSION: Civil society – particularly women and youth – effectively engage in policy development and implementation of peacebuilding at national, regional and global level. This makes peace processes more inclusive and sustainable, and helps to prevent violent conflict and violent extremism.
