||<p>DFID is championing Sustainable Development Goal 16, which focuses on ‘peace, justice
and inclusion’. We are supporting the strengthening of rule of law in a range of countries.
For example, DFID’s Rule of Law Expertise UK (ROLE UK) programme is a collaboration
with the UK legal sector to make its expertise, provided on a pro bono basis, available
to strengthen legal and judicial systems in developing countries. While much of ROLE
UK’s work is in the area of human rights, it does not engage in advocacy around legislative
changes. DFID and its partners always work within the law of the countries in which
we are operating.</p>
