Oxfam statement on involvement with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism

16th Nov 2012

Oxfam has occasionally worked with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, through its membership of the Robin Hood Tax campaign. 

In one instance only we provided the Bureau with funding of £1,500 to support an investigation of lobbying practices in the financial sector. 

We believe it is legitimate to employ independent journalists in support of Oxfam's campaigning agenda. We will continue to evaluate their use on a case-by-case basis.
