We at Oxfam envisage a world free of poverty and the injustices that stem from it; a world where all people are valued and treated equally and can lead dignified lives. To combat poverty, which we believe stems from inequality, we work with women to claim their rights, work alongside vulnerable groups to escape poverty and fight for climate justice.

Living Wage Network South Africa

Poverty in South Africa has increased to 30.4m between 2011-2016 and directly affects over half the population. Increasing labour participation rates without also focussing on what decent work including Living Wage looks like can result in less sustainable livelihoods. The Research Chair seeks to see how work contributes to inclusive prosperity through the lens of work psychology.
