SDG 16

Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels

Beside peace and justice (with the KPI intentional homicide offences), SDG 16 promotes effective, accountable and transparent institutions. The indicator trust in institutions broken down by the three main types of institutions — police, legal and political system — provides insights into their perceived performance. A similar indicator on ‘good governance’ referring to citizens’ confidence in EU institutions is also used for monitoring the EU Sustainable Development Strategy.
