International Development Committee

UK Government support for SDG 16 inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Written evidence received and published

Scope of the inquiry

In September 2017, the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies published a Roadmap for achieving SDG 16. The Roadmap groups together all the SDG targets which are necessary for achieving (i) peaceful societies, (ii) just societies, and (iii) inclusive societies. Accordingly, the Committee will consider the evidence according to these themes:

  • The Committee will first consider UK Government efforts to promote peaceful societies: ending violence in all forms including violence against children (see 16.1 and 16.2)
  • The Committee will then consider UK efforts to promote just societies: access to justice and rule of law, including human rights (see 16.3, 16.9 and 16.b); tackling corruption (see 16.4 and 16.5); 
  • Throughout the inquiry, the Committee will consider the extent to which the UK promotes inclusive societies. This includes the promotion of effective, accountable and transparent institutions, and participation in global governance (see 16.6 and 16.8); inclusive and participatory decision making (see 16.7) ; and public access to information (see 16.10). 
Terms of reference: UK Government support for SDG 16
