Spotlight Theme: The Rule of Law and Sustainable Development
The rule of law is no longer seen as only a complement to ongoing attempts at building a peaceful and inclusive society, but it is the very cornerstone on which the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) rests. It is like a thread that weaves together all of the goals within the 2030 Agenda, forming vital conditions that create a conducive environment for the advancement of equitable and sustained economic growth, as well as the full realization of human rights and fundamental freedoms. In this respect, the rule of law and development are not only strongly intertwined, but are also mutually reinforcing. For public institutions to become more effective, accountable, and inclusive, in accordance with SDGs Goal 16, it is crucial that relevant actors in all sectors come to appreciate the rule of law in all its complexities as the key factor in furthering development efforts at the national and international levels.
