SDG 16 focuses on “Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions”, but what are “Strong Institutions”? What are the qualities that make some governments stronger, better performing, and more responsive to their citizens’ well-being? How do those inside and outside of government measure success? And what is the role of civil society to ensure that strong institutions actually result in better lives for the people institutions should serve? Hear from three accomplished women: one who is helping define and measure what it means to be a strong institution, another who has governed a nation, and finally one who is supporting civil society organizations around the world to create more peaceful and just societies.
