Connection to United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


The mission of JUST SOCIETY is to deepen the understanding of how to strengthen institutions that support the rule of law and equal access to welfare which are essential for the proliferation of just society. As such, JUST SOCIETY aligns closely with the SDG no 16 on Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions which more specifically concerns the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

JUST SOCIETY’s research and teaching will revolve around equality and access to justice and redistributive public policies in areas such as health care, labour market conditions and social protection and will, hence, be connected with other SDGs including 1 No Poverty, no 5 Gender Equality, no 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth and no 10 Reduced Inequalities.

SDG no 17 Partnerships for the goals, to strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development, is integral to JUST SOCIETY as it is dependent on strong partnerships, research collaborations and a global public dialogue to achieve its mission.
