Peace & Justice Challenge

Peace & Justice ChallengeGlobal Challenge #16 – Peace Justice and Strong Institutions

Background

Promoting peace and justice, together with effective, accountable and inclusive institutions, remains uneven across regions. We must create inclusive societies for sustainable development and ensure access to justice for all.

Violence

Conflicts have increased over recent years and the global homicide rate has increased for the first time since 2004. A handful of high-intensity armed conflicts are causing large amount of civilian casualties.

  • In 2016, more than one person died every minute, every day of the year due to lethal violence
  • Various forms of violence against children persists, mainly due to physical and psychological discipline
  • In mainly developing countries though available research, 8 in 10 children report being subject to some kind of psychological aggression and or physical aggression on a regular basis
  • Sexual violence is perhaps the most disturbing of children’s rights violations. Under or lack of reporting useable data limits the understanding of the full extent of the issue. It is estimated over 16% of young women in the 35 low and middle income countries experience sexual violence before the age of 18

Justice

  • Globally, rates of pretrial detention suggests that progress in the rule of law and access to justice has been slow. The proportion of people being held in detention without being sentenced for a crime has remained close to unchanged since 2003
  • Inefficient regulation and procedures encourage opportunities for corruption within political and law offices
  • In 2015 an estimated 18% of firms worldwide reported receiving at least one bribery request
  • 25% in low income countries and 4% in low income countries
  • Birth registration is a first step towards securing individual rights and providing every person with access to sound justice and social services
  • Just 71% of all births globally ensure proper registration of the child
  • Less than 46% of all children under 5 years old in sub-Saharan Africa have had their births registered
  • Access to and legislation concerning freedom of information has increased steadily despite slow and inefficient implementations
  • By the start of 2017, 37% of countries has a national human rights institution that was compliant with the standards of the Paris Principles
