Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities

10: Reduced Inequalities

Sustainable Development Goal 10 SDG 10 is a call to action to reduce inequalities within and among countries. The United Nations has appointed this McMaster expert to help.    

Bonny Ibhawoh, Professor, History

No one left behind: Promoting and protecting global human rights 

Growing up in Nigeria under a military dictatorship, Bonny Ibhawoh learned firsthand that human rights are often a casualty of conflict, and it sparked his interest in learning more. Today, he’s the director of the Centre for Human Rights and Restorative Justice at McMaster. He’s tackling systemic inequalities and human rights violations globally. And he’s been appointed by the UN to monitor human rights around the world.

Reducing inequalities, Ibhawoh says, is foundational to all of the Sustainable Development Goals – from poverty to climate change – so SDG 10 is central to his work.

He believes that for human rights research to be worthwhile, it must be directly linked to practice and have a positive impact on people’s daily lives.
