Policy

Our global and regional policy reports, briefings, blogs and other resources on key issues - providing analysis of sustainable development, grounded in our international programme experience.

Christian Aid’s team of leading policy experts present our global and regional policy reports, briefings, blogs and other resources on out key issues. We provide analysis of sustainable development, grounded in our international programme experience.

Our policy work aims to have a prophetic voice - influencing and informing a wide range of stakeholders from civil society, to government, private sector and church leaders. We create policy materials on a wide range of topical and cutting-edge issues, which in turn informs our advocacy and campaigning work around the world.

Our priority policy themes

Governments and the private sector both have a role to play in building just, sustainable, economies. The way that companies behave, and the way that they are regulated, especially in terms of the tax they pay and their investments into developing countries, can make a big difference to the lives of poor people.
