“Tackling Equality Is Good For Everyone”


In our latest episode of “On Human Rights,” we interview Nick Bryer, the head of inequality campaigns at Oxfam, about their latest report on inequality.

The report, “Reward Work, Not Wealth,” finds that in the last year, 82% of new wealth went to the richest 1%.

There is a wealth of evidence that shows that tackling equality is good for everyone, Bryer says. More equal societies are more stable, safer, more economically stable and prosperous.

In this episode, Radu Mares, RWI’s Senior researcher and co-team leader for Economic Globalisation and Human Rights, asks Bryer about the report, the methods used and what it all means.
