SDG 16 Peace, justice and strong institutions

SDG 16 peace, justice and strong institutions

Goal 16 aims to foster peaceful and inclusive societies, ensure justice for all, and establish effective, transparent, and inclusive institutions at every level. It seeks to create an environment where people, regardless of their ethnicity, faith, or sexual orientation, can live free from fear and feel safe in their daily lives, free from violence.

Griffith University is aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to tackling global challenges around SDG 16 peace, justice and strong institutions. Below are some of our outputs supporting this goal.
