Call for Papers (Sustainable Development Goal Sixteen SDG 16)

The editorial board of the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Journal is delighted to invite scholars to submit their contributions for the second issue of the ROLACC Journal. Especially welcome are submissions focused on assessing the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations, and in particular the national plans and strategies that have been adopted to implement SDG 16. The sustainable development goals of the UN seek to ensure prosperity for all, ending the many different types of poverty and corruption in the world through the implementation of seventeen distinct goals that address the humanitarian and social needs of individuals, as well as the wider society.

In this issue, the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Journal seeks to display the full range of research, studies and experiences across the globe, and shed light on the views and analyses of experts in the field of rule of law and anti-corruption in relation to SDG 16, which seeks to promote “peace, justice and strong institutions”.

The challenges faced in today’s world are complex, and differ from one region to another; while some people live in environments that are both peaceful and secure, many others live in an endless cycle of conflicts and corruption that directly affects the rights and freedoms of individuals and disturbs the stability of society. SDG 16 supports the development of sustainable, peaceful and inclusive societies, highlights the provision of access to justice for all, and aims at building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels, thereby contributing to the elimination of abuses of power that can take hold when these institutions are not in place. SDG 16 also seeks to enhance cooperation between governments and communities to find solutions to conflicts and insecurity.

This issue aims at presenting the latest methods, tools and best practices in addressing, discussing and analyzing SDG16, as well as the actions taken by states to shield their most vulnerable members. This, the second issue of the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Journal, will adopt this theme within its conceptual framework, incorporating experimental research and papers that focus on current and contemporary law issues, as well as philosophical or theoretical questions that trigger important legal discussions.

ROLACC Journal is inviting papers for Vol.1, Issue 2, scheduled to be published in December 2018.
Kindly send your initial draft to the Managing Editor, Dr. Reem Al-Ansari at no later than September 30th, 2018.
