Topic

The 2030 Agenda, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 70/01 of 2015, sets the basis for the international agenda between 2015 and 2030. This initiative places sustainable development at the centre of international relations and it addresses economic, social and environmental matters, insofar they represent the three affirmed pillars of reference. It aims to achieve 17 objectives, together with a series of goals that define their realization.

International Law is a key tool for the SDGs. The purpose of this issue is to examine the SDGs from international law legal perspectives. This approach appears as a novel one given the absence of a special issue on the topic and the few contributions addressing it. In particular, the relevance of the SDGs for the international order, the legal aspects of the 2030 Agenda, theory of law issues regarding International Law and applicable to the SDGs, are all relevant topics that have received little scholar attention, therefore representing a very interesting and novel field of knowledge which calls for exploration. Other questions that should be taken into consideration include the legal nature of sustainable development, the binding nature of the SDGs international instruments, its relationship with treaties or customary norms (general and/or fundamental principles, intersystemic relations that arise within the international legal order, the applicability of the debate on fragmentation to the 2030 Agenda, consistency between the obligations assumed and the achievement of SDGs, etc.   

In this sense, the following research lines are proposed:

  • Aspects of theory of law, in International Law, of the 2030 Agenda
  • Legal nature of sustainable development
  • Legal (and theoretical) aspects of the international protection of the environment, human rights protection and sustainable economy and the SDGs.
  • Legal (and theoretical) aspects of the right to development and the 2030 Agenda
  • The debate on the fragmentation of the international legal order, questions of consistency, unity and SDGs.
  • The impact of the 2030 Agenda in the law (domestic and international)
  • Sources and subjects of International Law and the 2030 Agenda.
  • Means of application of International Law and the 2030 Agenda.
  • Institutional legal aspects of SDGs and IL
