Millions of people are being forced from their homes, risking everything to escape conflict, disaster, poverty or hunger.

With no end in sight to the conflict in Syria, hundreds of thousands of people are living in desperate conditions and exposed to continuing violence. Today, half the pre-conflict population of 22 million Syrians have fled their homes and more than 13 million people urgently need your help.

Our new inequality report reveals how our economy is delivering billions for those at the top by exploiting millions of ordinary workers at the bottom. Here are some of the most interesting questions we’ve been asked about it, and our answers.
Oxfam’s new inequality report, which found that just 8 men own the same wealth as half the world, is making headlines around the globe. Here we reply to five of the most frequently asked questions about this astonishing report.

Africa is losing billions of dollars through tax dodging. This week's World Economic Forum on Africa 2015 must squarely address tax avoidance tricks and other illicit financial flows, tax incentives, and debt repayments.
