One World Action is a partnership between poor and exploited people in the South and those who share their vision of a better, more equal world. One World Action works with organisations who have a f rm belief in democracy and equality linked with a respect for human rights and freedoms. Priority is given to trying to influence and change policies and practices in the North that perpetuate or cause poverty and inequality in the South. Promoting and strengthening more participatory democracy and especially greater active involvement of women internationally, nationally, and locally, linked to lobbying for European policies and practices that support and facilitate this, is a central focus of the work of One World Action.
