Abstract or Introduction
This assignment is an attempt to discuss the state of Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions in the world and how I think the UN goal can be achieved. Our globe is plagued with poverty, hunger, health epidemics, war, economic uncertainty, etc. In the light of this, the Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, include 17 different goals that were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The 16th goal which is about Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions aims to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effect and accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. For decades peace seems to have evaded most parts of our world.
While some regions enjoy peace, security and prosperity, many others fall into seemingly endless cycles of wars, conflict and violence. The UN Peacekeepers and other peace seeking councils and stakeholders seem to be at their wits end as to reaching global peace. Institutions have been so weakened by greed and corruption that they are unable to ensure justice
especially for the less privileged and vulnerable. Worst of all these include the police and the judiciary, who represent the main institutions of fighting corruption and ensuring justice for all. It is impossible expect sustainable development without peace, stability, respect for human rights and effective governance, based on the rule of law. This is really a global challenge.
