Goal 16: Research

The University’s research activities play a key role in our approach to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Here’s a wider showcase of our work addressing Goal 16.

Effective States and Inclusive Development

Our Global Development Institute has led the Effective States and Inclusive Development (ESID) Research Centre, a global partnership that spans 26 countries and a myriad of partners, for more than a decade.

The Centre investigates the kinds of politics that promote development, deepening the understanding of governance in the developing world in ways that impact on policy and practice around areas such as economic growth, natural resource governance and women’s empowerment.

Project Honeycomb

Our criminology researchers are linking up with leading research and technology development company, Trilateral Research, to collaborate on Project Honeycomb.

This will develop relationships with organisations across the private, public and civil society sectors, and support them to record information related to modern slavery, human trafficking and exploitation.

Building on these insights, Honeycomb will run a series of campaigns and help the city intelligently and creatively protect people from the crimes of human trafficking and modern slavery as well as interrupting traffickers’ activities.

On Gender

We produced On Gender to identify what we know – and what we need to know – about gender inequality in tackling the big policy agendas devolved to Greater Manchester and other areas, with devolution deals in areas such as ageing, labour markets, education, parenting and sexual violence.
