About the product
This issue of F3 includes articles describing different areas where resilience should be built to address individual and collective challenges. They offer a variety of perspectives, illustrating the necessity of enhancing resilience in institutions, sectors and societies to achieve human rights for all, prevent and counter crime and violent extremism, and mitigate emerging risks and respond to threats. Many articles of this issue are closely connected to the Sustainable Development Goal 16 of the UN 2030 Agenda, in particular to Goal 16 aiming at promoting peaceful and inclusive societies, providing access to justice and strengthening institutions and accountability. In addition, Goals 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14 and 17 are also referred in these articles, embodying the connections between resilience and development, education, gender equality, cyber security, youth and women empowerment, community policies, law enforcement, environmental crimes, the risks and opportunities of advances in technology, and the power of sports and partnerships. Throughout those articles, the crucial role of collaborative communities and a human-centred approach in supporting vulnerable groups and shaping a better future are underlined as well as the importance of regional and international cooperation.
