Confronting inequalities and advancing inclusion, peace, and SDG16


What linkages are there with confronting inequalities and peace? What evidence, experiences, and stories are there of advancing inclusion as a path to peace? How integrated are either into current peacebuilding practice, and, should they be? SDG16 “seeks to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.” Is striving to implement SDG16 helping build peace? How could it do so better? What are we learning?
