    Goals / remit

ActionAid is an international anti-poverty agency which takes sides with poor people to end poverty and injustice together.

Around the world we work in local communities, listening to poor people and learning about their needs. We help them approach decision makers in their own countries, simultaneously lobbying powerful institutions such as the G8 and the EU to change the international laws and regulations that contribute to the uneven distribution of wealth.

The European Union (EU) is the largest multi-lateral donor of aid in the world and the decisions made within it have major implications for the lives of millions of people living in the developing world.

ActionAid opened its EU Office in Brussels in 1999. The function of the ActionAid EU Office is to ensure that EU policies place the fight against extreme poverty and global injustice as a central concern.

Drawing on ActionAid’s experience working in Asia, Africa, Europe and in the Americas, the ActionAid EU office focuses its efforts on optimising the political space for development within the EU by working with other civil society organisations in favour of human rights



Drawing on ActionAid’s experience working in Asia, Africa and in the Americas, the ActionAid EU office focuses its efforts on optimising the political space for development within the EU. We work with other civil society organisations to seek justice on rights.

Our day-to-day work is rooted in the rights based approach to ending poverty, helping poor people to help themselves by claiming their rights, in particular:

1. Land rights and sustainable agriculture
2. Just and democratic governance
3. Education and youth
4. Resilience and emergency response
5. Women's rights
