Global Deal LogoThe DFI/Oxfam Commitment to Reducing Inequality Index featured at the High-Level Follow-Up Meeting at the UN General Assembly for the Global Deal, the initiative launched by the Government of Sweden in 2016 to promote Social Dialogue as a means of reducing inequality.

Oxfam International’s Executive Director Winnie Byanyima spoke about the huge need to enhance social dialogue given that the CRI Index showed how most governments are doing very little to fight inequality. Bilateral meetings also confirmed the enthusiasm of the Swedish government to host a CRI launch soon.
