Abstract:
In the past decade, Oxfam has streamlined and restructured its global activities in an attempt to professionalise and strategise. This move has affected the relationship between different Oxfam components and between Oxfam and its partners. A three layered approach, looking at structural elements, ideational elements and organisational learning, is used to pick apart the restructuring and its effects within the Oxfam GB head office, the Oxfam Ugandan Country Office, The National Union of Disabled Persons of Uganda (NUDIPU), and NUDIPU's district branches. The fate of disability issues within this picture reveal the inequalities involved between North and South, and the able bodied and persons with disabilities.
