The proposals set out in this report highlight issues where Oxfam believes government policy and strategy need to be developed and further action taken in order to promote poverty reduction, social justice and a fair society for all. Oxfam believes that poverty, social exclusion and discrimination represent a denial of human rights, preventing people from exercising their full rights (e.g. to housing, adequate health care, education, to an adequate standard of living). We endorse the view of Parliament’s Joint Committee for Human Rights that a rights-based approach can assist government in addressing poverty.
