Beyond 16: The SDGs and the opportunity to build a more peaceful world

Steven, David; Rachel Locke and Lukas Rüttinger 2019: Beyond 16: The SDGs and the opportunity to build a more peaceful world. In: Batmanglich, Sara et al.: Driving Transformative Change: Foreign Affairs and the 2030 Agenda. Berlin: adelphi, 80-90.

The foreign policy community faces a choice. It can continue to allow unacceptable levels of violence and conflict to undermine individual countries and the global order. Or it can build a new consensus that violence is a preventable epidemic. This would take seriously a growing body of evidence showing what is most likely to work to steer the world back toward global peace, resilient societies, and more sustainable prosperity, David Steven, Rachel Locke and Lukas Rüttinger claim.

adelphi's volume "Driving Transformative Change:Foreign Affairs and the 2030 Agenda", comprised by 6 provocative essays, explores what contributions foreign policy can make on the road to achieving sustainable ways of life and provide guidance by pointing out entry points, priorities and trade-offs. They aim to inspire actors around the world to work together to initiate and boost the necessary changes and keep winning over new like-minded partners.
