The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN) are essential for investigations on human rights, and as such for the work of our Clinic, because they provide a framework for countries to promote and protect human rights in a holistic manner. SDG 16 specifically focuses on promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing a roadmap for investigating and addressing human rights violations. Additionally, other SDGs such as SDG 5 on gender equality and SDG 10 on reducing inequalities can also play a critical role in investigating human rights abuses and ensuring that all individuals are treated fairly and equitably. Overall, the SDGs provide a valuable tool for investigating and addressing human rights violations, and their implementation can help ensure that everyone’s fundamental human rights are respected and protected.
