The consultations on, and final form of, what has become known as the 2030 Agenda have made one thing clear: the imperatives of inclusivity, equity and justice are central to the global pursuit for sustainable development. The space for a genuine dialogue about human rights and democratic governance has opened up. This is timely: around the world, the grassroots demand for justice and the rule of law is growing ever more vocal. Substantial investment is now required to satisfy this demand -- not least, through the type of legal frameworks, institutional capacity and legal empowerment that IDLO has long advocated and helped implement.
