Organizational history

The Oxford Committee for Famine Relief was formed on 5 October 1942 at a meeting in the Old Library of the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin. It was one of several similar groups set up around the U.K. during the Second World War, in support of the National Famine Relief Committee, to lobby for the relief of suffering behind the Allied blockade in Greece and other countries under German occupation. The Oxford Committee initially raised funds to be channelled through the Greek Red Cross. Throughout the remainder of the war it also campaigned, unsuccessfully, for the lifting of the blockade to allow relief supplies through to starving populations. In March 1943 it was registered as a charity under the War Charities Act.

In the post-war years, the Oxford Committee remained in existence to raise funds and dispatch supplies of food and clothing to refugees and others in Europe through agencies such as the Salvation Army and the Save the Children Fund. In 1948 it broadened its aims to include 'the relief of suffering as a result of wars or of other causes in any part of the world' and turned its attention also to aid for refugees in the Middle East and people affected by conflict in Korea in the early 1950s. In the 1960s, it gained national recognition through its humanitarian response to war and famine in the Congo and Biafra. In 1965, the shortened telegraphic address, 'Oxfam', which had been used informally since the 1940s, was adopted as the charity's registered name.

During the 1960s Oxfam began to highlight the need in many countries for long-term development work to address the causes of poverty. It played a leading role in the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation's 'Freedom from Hunger' campaign, launched in the U.K. in 1962, which aimed to combat food shortages, not by giving food aid but by enabling people to grow enough to feed themselves. Oxfam's grants to local agencies for work in areas such as agriculture and public health increased throughout the decade. By the early 1970s, it was supporting 800 projects involving local communities, overseen by eleven Field Directors based in the countries concerned. Public education, campaigning and advocacy on issues affecting poor people also became a major focus for the organization at this time.

Today, advocacy and campaigning, development work to help poor people work their own way out of poverty, and humanitarian work in emergencies, assisting those immediately affected by conflict and natural disasters, remain the basis of Oxfam's programme. As a major, international non-governmental organization, Oxfam is a world leading expert in public health in emergencies.

In 1962, Oxfam was launched in Canada. Other Oxfams followed, in America, Belgium and elsewhere. Oxfam International, a confederation of non-governmental organizations, was formed in 1995. Oxfam GB, the organization founded in Oxford in 1942, and other national Oxfams are members of Oxfam International.

For further information see M Black, A Cause for our Times: Oxfam - the first 50 years (Oxfam and Oxford University Press, 1992).

Oxfam's programme

A Grants Sub-Committee was set up in November 1955 to oversee and report to Oxfam's Executive Committee on the funding and management of its programme. Membership consisted of trustees and external expert advisers, with staff in attendance. From 1963, Field Committees for geographical regions, responsible for considering grant applications, reported to this Committee, renamed the Overseas Aid Committee in January 1964. In 1975 the Overseas Aid Committee was stood down and its responsibilities transferred to the Executive Committee. Field Committees were stood down in 1992 and their functions passed to a new, global Overseas Committee.

From the 1960s, Oxfam's programme was managed by the Overseas Aid Department, reporting to the Overseas Aid Committee. As the Department expanded it was renamed the Overseas Division in 1975 and, in 1995, the International Division.

In 1961, Oxfam appointed its first Field Director, based in southern Africa and tasked with overseeing and developing the programme there. Other such appointments followed in Asia and elsewhere. Field Secretaries in Oxford were points of contact for the Field Directors. This administration grew to form 'Desks' based on geographical regions, including Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

In order to improve Oxfam's response to humanitarian emergencies, a Disasters Unit was established in the early 1970s, alongside a Health Unit and, later, a Technical Unit. As the Disasters Unit grew in the following decades it was renamed the Emergencies Unit (late 1980s), the Emergencies Department (1993) and the Humanitarian Department (2000). In 1993, following the disbanding of the Health Unit and the Technical Unit, a Public Health Team relating to these functions was formed within the Emergencies Department.

Field Secretaries and Desks were concerned with the entire programme in their regions, whether in terms of development or response to disasters, while the Disasters Unit and its successors led Oxfam's humanitarian emergency response. A process of decentralisation in the 1990s, referred to as 'regionalisation', resulted in management responsibilities being transferred from the Oxford Desks to regional offices in the countries in which Oxfam worked.

A Public Affairs Unit was established in the Communications Division in 1974 to develop links with government and professional bodies and to research subjects relevant to the programme. In 1992 it was brought into the Overseas Division as part of a move to create a corporate policy unit with a remit to lobby for policy change on issues affecting poverty and development. This new Public Policy Department also encompassed the work of the Overseas Division's Development Policy Unit. Following restructuring in 1993 and the addition of a Gender and Learning Team (previously the Gender and Development Unit), a Programme Development Team, and a Publications Team, it was renamed the Policy Department. Strategic Planning and Evaluation staff were brought into the Policy Department in 2000, a Programme Policy Team was created, and the Department was incorporated into a new Campaigns and Policy Division.

The Gender and Development Unit was established in 1984. Its task was to raise awareness among staff at all levels of socially constructed differences between men and women and the unequal power relationships that result, and to incorporate a gender perspective in Oxfam's programme. A staff network, Action for Gender Relations in Asia, was established in the same year. In 1990 the Unit initiated a publishing strategy. In 1992 the Gender and Development Unit became the Gender Team, with an advisory function, located in the Policy Department. In 1996 it merged with the Programme Development Team to create the Gender and Learning Team.

Scope and Content

This record group contains records of Oxfam GB (formerly Oxfam and Oxfam UK/I) only. These comprise key series of programme policy, management and administration materials.

Programme policy and management materials include minutes and related papers of the senior committees directing Oxfam’s programme, such as the Overseas Aid and Field Committees; Overseas Aid Department and International, formerly Overseas, Division Directorate internal and external correspondence; papers relating to planning and reporting processes; and programme reports, including country annual, development and humanitarian reports, and evaluations of development and humanitarian work.

Records of the Policy Department and its predecessors include correspondence of the Policy Director and staff, policy reports, briefings, position papers and discussion documents issued by Oxfam. Records of programme administration include correspondence of the regional Desks and of the Humanitarian Department and its predecessors.

Arrangement

Oxfam’s functions have remained fairly constant over many years, but a number of organizational restructurings have resulted in functions being transferred between departments and teams. To preserve continuity, records have been arranged according to function (in this case, Oxfam's programme) rather than department or team.

The arrangement reflects the original filing system where that is apparent, and is usually chronological and / or by country or region.

Reports relating to particular countries are arranged according to the current country name, regardless of date. For example, reports relating to Upper Volta appear in the catalogue along with reports relating to Burkina Faso.

Original file titles, where they exist, are given in inverted commas preceding descriptions. Titles of reports are also given in inverted commas.

Restrictions on Access

Material of a sensitive personal or corporate nature is closed. Restricted material is indicated in the catalogue.

A.4   Minutes of the Europe and Mediterranean and Middle East Field Committees 1963-1992

Organizational history

The Europe and Mediterranean Field Committee was established along with other Field Committees in 1963. The Field Committees reported to the Overseas Aid Committee and were responsible for considering grant applications, with powers to approve up to £5,000 initially.

The Europe and Mediterranean Field Committee was renamed and the countries that it related to changed over the decades, but countries in the Middle East were dealt with throughout its life. By 1965 it formed part of the Latin America and Mediterranean Field Committee. After the setting up of the Latin America and Caribbean Field Committee in 1966, it again functioned as the Europe and Mediterranean Field Committee.

There are very few surviving papers of the Europe and Mediterranean Field Committee and its successors, the Middle East and North Africa Field Committee; the Europe, Middle East and North Africa Field Committee; and the Europe, West Asia and North Africa Field Committee. There are only patchy survivals of papers for 1963-1967, and an incomplete set of materials for 1972-1980, all contemporary copies.

Minutes and papers survive for the West Asia Field Committee (1981-1982); the Middle East Field Committee (1983); the Middle East and Red Sea Committee (1983-1986); and the Middle East Field Committee (1986-1992).

Annual reports of Field Directors were submitted to the Committees from the 1970s. As well as reviewing the previous year, they often laid out priorities for the coming year. Occasional country or programme reviews were also submitted, as well as tour reports, evaluation reports and other reports relating to the programme.

The Middle East and other Field Committees were stood down in 1992 and their functions passed to a new, global Overseas Committee.

A.5   Minutes of the Latin America and Caribbean Field Committee 1966-1992

Organizational history

The Latin America and Caribbean Field Committee was set up in 1966. Countries in the area had previously been dealt with by the Latin America and Mediterranean Field Committee (see PRG/1/4/1). Until July 1985 it is referred to as 'The Field Committee for Latin America', though concerned also with the Caribbean. In October 1985 the geographical area in the title changes to 'Latin America and the Caribbean'. Between Jul 1986 and Apr 1987 it is referred to as the Regional Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean, thereafter as the Latin America and Caribbean Committee. (It is referred to throughout this catalogue as the Latin America and Caribbean Field Committee.)

The Field Committees reported to the Overseas Aid Committee and were responsible for considering grant applications, with powers to approve up to £5,000 initially. Annual reports of Field Directors were submitted to the Committees from the 1970s. As well as reviewing the previous year, they often laid out priorities for the coming year. Occasional country or programme reviews were also submitted, as well as tour reports, evaluation reports and other reports relating to the programme. The Latin America and Caribbean and other Field Committees were stood down in 1992 and their functions passed to a new, global Overseas Committee.

A.6   Minutes of the Medical Advisory Panel 1965-1983

Organizational history

The establishment of the Medical Advisory Panel was approved by the Overseas Aid Committee at a meeting on 6 Apr 1965. Its primary function was to offer advice on aspects of medical policy, such as Oxfam's attitude to and work on family planning, leprosy and tuberculosis. The panel initially consisted of Dr. W.R. Aykroyd (Chair), Dr. H.H.W. Bennett, Dr. Muriel Harris, and Dr. Vera Walker. From the outset, the two existing medical members of the Africa and Asia Field Committees were members. Later members included Dr. C.E. Cooper, Dr. M. Macaulay, Professor Sir Robert Mackintosh, Dr. J.L. Tester, Dr. D.P. Burkitt, Dr. W.A.M. Cutting, Dr. B. Gans, Dr. A.B. Gilroy, Dr. D. Barker, Dr. Susan Cole-King, Dr. J. Guillebaud and Dr. T. Lusty. Dr. Walker replaced Dr. Aykroyd as Chair in 1971 and was succeeded by Dr. Lusty in 1974.

A complete set of signed minutes and papers has not survived. Documents listed in MS. Oxfam PRG/1/6 were kept by Ken Bennett, Overseas Director; Michael Harris, Deputy Overseas Director; David Carter, Assistant to the Overseas Director; Humphrey Hilton, Secretary to the Medical Advisory Panel; Ausma Acworth, Secretary to the Medical Advisory Panel; and Dr. Tim Lusty, Chair of the Medical Advisory Panel.

A.11   Minutes of the Africa Management Team 1991-1996

Organizational history

The Africa Management Team was established in March 1991, following a restructuring of the Oxford 'Desks' based on geographical areas. Area Co-ordinators for Africa South and North were replaced by a single Africa Director, and seven Desk Officers became Regional Managers, all based in Oxford. The change was designed as a first step towards regionalisation, or decentralisation. In late 1995 the number of Regional Managers was reduced from seven to four. Shortly afterwards, regional offices were established, first in Southern and then West Africa, and management responsibilities were transferred to them from the Desk. The East & Central and the Horn Desks were then merged into one and a regional office was opened in Nairobi to manage this region.

Organizational history

During the 1980s, Area Co-ordinators on the Oxford 'Desks' based on geographical regions were responsible for areas of the international programme. There were, for example, Area Co-ordinators for Africa South and Africa North. The Co-ordinators met regularly with the Overseas Division Director and other senior staff from the Overseas Division.

In 1991, Area Co-ordinators were replaced by Area Directors responsible for the whole of an area, for example, Africa. From March 1991, meetings are referred to as meetings of Overseas Directors, from May as meetings of Area Directors, and from August as meetings of the Senior Management Team. Senior staff from other departments within the Overseas, later International, Division, such as the Policy Department, also joined these meetings.

Organizational history

In the 1960s, Oxfam's Liaison Officer, based in Geneva, maintained Oxfam's contacts within the international community, kept Oxford informed of developments among agencies there, and represented Oxfam at meetings of international bodies.

In the early 1970s an International Secretary was appointed, based in Oxford, whose duties included liaison with international organizations, support of educational and fundraising initiatives outside the U.K., and promotion of such work. Some of these duties had previously been carried out by an Assistant to the Director of Oxfam and other staff.

B.3.13   Correspondence with other Oxfams 1962-2002

Organizational history

In August 1962, Oxfam's Council of Management proposed the launch of Oxfam in Canada. This extension of Oxfam operated initially as the Canadian Committee for World Relief. In May 1963 the name was changed to Oxfam of Canada. Lynn ten Kate was seconded from Oxford in November 1963 to direct the work. From 1964, Henry Fletcher, Deputy Director of Oxfam in Oxford, made a series of visits to Canada to develop the organization, and in 1966 he left Oxford to take on the directorship of Oxfam Canada, as it became known. He remained in that post until 1971.

It had been agreed that funds raised in Canada for Oxfam's international programme would be channelled through Oxfam in Oxford. From the late 1960s, Oxfam Canada began to assert its independence in funding programme work.

Oxfam Belgique was created in 1964, based in Brussels. This was further developed from late 1966 with the emergence of Oxfam in Gent (Oxfam in Belgium is thus referred to as Oxfam Belgique-België throughout the catalogue). Other Oxfams followed, and some existing agencies, such as Community Aid Abroad in Australia, came to be regarded as national Oxfams. By 1974 the idea of Oxfam International, a worldwide federation of Oxfams with a shared programme and policies, was being formally discussed, though this did not come into being until 1995.

Some of these files contain correspondence with staff in the Oxfam Directorate, the Information Department and other teams. Such files were passed latterly to the Overseas Aid Department / Overseas Directorate.

C   Reports and papers mainly relating to Oxfam's development programme in countries and regions 1956-2011

Organizational history

In 1961, Oxfam appointed its first Field Director, based in southern Africa and tasked with overseeing and developing the programme there. Other such appointments followed in Asia and elsewhere. Field Secretaries in Oxford were points of contact for the Field Directors. This administration grew to form 'Desks' based on geographical regions, including Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

Field Secretaries and Desks were concerned with the entire programme in their regions, whether in terms of development or response to disasters, while the Disasters Unit and its successors led Oxfam's humanitarian emergency response. A process of decentralisation in the 1990s, referred to as 'regionalisation', resulted in management responsibilities being transferred from the Oxford Desks to regional offices in the countries in which Oxfam worked.

Organizational history

As the Desks became established, the administrations for Asia and the Middle East were drawn together under one Area Director. A process of decentralisation in the 1990s, referred to as 'regionalisation', resulted in management responsibility for Asia being transferred to a Regional Management Centre in Asia. The administration for the Middle East remained in Oxford as part of the Regional Management Centre for Russia, Eastern Europe, the Former Soviet Union and the Middle East (later the Middle East, Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States region).

The Consortium of British Charities, comprising Christian Aid, Oxfam and War on Want, was formed, initially as the Disasters Emergency Committee Sub-Committee for East Pakistan, to carry out a programme of work in East Pakistan, later Bangladesh, following the 1970 cyclone and the civil war in 1971. (See MS. Oxfam PRG/3/3/2/5-8.)

In 1979 Oxfam initiated the formation of the NGO Consortium for Kampuchea (Cambodia), which carried out a programme of relief there from October 1979 to December 1981. The Kampuchea Information Office, based on the Asia Desk in Oxfam House, coordinated and managed communications relating to the programme with Consortium members (see MS. Oxfam PRG/3/3/2/13-15).

Oxfam's Indochina Working Group was established in 1985 to support its lobbying and campaigning work relating to Kampuchea, Thailand and Vietnam particularly, in the first years of its existence. In 1988 the Working Group was split into the Indochina Policy Group and the Kampuchea Working Group. The latter was disbanded in November 1988. (See MS. Oxfam PRG/3/3/2/69-72.)

C.3.4   Middle East 1966-1997

Organizational history

As the Desks became established, the administrations for Asia and the Middle East were drawn together under one Area Director. A process of decentralisation in the 1990s, referred to as 'regionalisation', resulted in management responsibility for Asia being transferred to a Regional Management Centre in Asia. The administration for the Middle East remained in Oxford as part of the Regional Management Centre for Russia, Eastern Europe, the Former Soviet Union and the Middle East, later the Middle East, Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States region. (See MS. Oxfam PRG/3/3/5/1-43.)

C.3.5   Middle East, Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States 1993-2005

Organizational history

From the early 1990s, Oxfam was at work in the region it referred to as East Europe and the Former Soviet Union, with Tony Vaux as Coordinator. One of Oxfam's first initiatives in the region was the 1993 'Cold Front' appeal for warm clothing.

By 1999, a Regional Management Centre for Russia, Eastern Europe, the Former Soviet Union and the Middle East had been established in Oxford with Adam Leach as Regional Director. From the early 2000s, the region was known as the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

C.5   Tour reports 1956-2003

Organizational history

Tour reports were compiled by visitors to Oxfam's programme in a country or region. Visitors could be Oxfam staff from the UK, or from elsewhere in the global programme, or occasionally from other Oxfams. Some international staff visiting the UK also compiled tour reports. Tour reports were sometimes submitted to the Field Committees and may be found among papers for meetings in MS. Oxfam PRG/1/2-5.

From 1965, visits from Oxford were organised for groups of Oxfam staff seeking exposure to the programme and, from 1980, also for volunteers. Participants were encouraged to evaluate and gather information on Oxfam's work with partners for use in public communications work and information materials.


Arrangement

Reports of visits to a single country are arranged by country. Reports relating to more than one country are arranged by area or region, e.g. Asia. All except those relating to staff and volunteers' tours (MS. Oxfam PRG/3/5/17) form one alphabetical sequence so that, for example, a tour report for Angola might be followed in the catalogue by a tour report for several countries in Asia.

Arrangement

Reports relating to a single country are arranged by country. Reports relating to more than one country are arranged by area or region, e.g. Asia. All form one roughly alphabetical sequence so that, for example, a report for Angola might be followed in the catalogue by a report relating to several countries in Asia. Reports which are not country or area specific are grouped as general reports and are arranged chronologically at the end of the alphabetical sequence.

Organizational history

In order to improve Oxfam's response to humanitarian emergencies, a Disasters Unit was established in the early 1970s, alongside a Health Unit and, later, a Technical Unit. As the Disasters Unit grew in the following decades it was renamed the Emergencies Unit (late 1980s), the Emergencies Department (1993) and the Humanitarian Department (2000).

In 1993, following the disbanding of the Health Unit and the Technical Unit, a Public Health Team relating to these functions was formed within the Emergencies Department.

This subseries contains reports and related papers, such as correspondence, project proposals, and material from workshops and conferences that relate to humanitarian aid in emergency situations. It includes reports and related papers of the Health and Technical Units, and the Public Health Team, which formed part of the Emergencies, later Humanitarian, Department.

Arrangement

Humanitarian reports and related papers are arranged by country. Reports relating to more than one country are arranged by area or region, e.g. Africa.

Arrangement

Humanitarian evaluations and related papers are arranged by country. Evaluations relating to more than one country are arranged by area or region, e.g. Africa. All form one alphabetical sequence, so that an evaluation for Angola might be followed in the catalogue by an evaluation for several countries in Asia. Evaluations which are not country or area specific are grouped as general at the end of the alphabetical sequence.

Organizational history

Oxfam has produced an internal newsletter featuring humanitarian emergencies since the 1960s. Initially produced by the Information Department regarding specific emergencies, it later contained news about emergency situations - actual and potential - around the world, as well as Oxfam's response. From about 1990 to Mar 1993, the newsletter was produced by the Emergencies Unit and the Information Department. Between Sep 1993 and Jan 1996 it was produced by the Resources Unit. From Feb 1996 it was produced by the Emergencies Department. It had various titles over the years, including 'Emergencies Sitrep', 'Emergencies Update', 'Monthly Emergencies Report', and 'Emergencies Bulletin'.

'Humanitarian News' was issued by the Humanitarian Department from May 2006.

For early issues of 'Emergencies Bulletin', see MS. Oxfam COM/2/6, Information Department emergencies files, in the Oxfam Archive: Communications catalogue.
