Abstract

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 10, Reduced Inequalities, addresses one of the fundamental building blocks for the realization of all SDGs in a very unequal world. It emphasizes both interstate and intrastate inequality and, in so doing, goes much beyond what the 2000 Millennium Development Goals offered. SDG 10 is a central goal because inequality conditions the realization of many other SDGs, some of which also directly address inequality. In the context of international law, SDG 10 reflects in part existing equity measures, such as preferential and differential treatment. It may be seen as strengthening the equity context in economic law but does not go beyond what sustainable development law already provides. Its main contribution is to link different types of inequalities and provide a framework for linking sustainable development law, economic law, and human rights.
