Life amidst conflict is convoluted. In the riot hit area of Muzaffarnagar (in 2013) a huge population from a religious community had to live in camps. For more than 8 months, people lived in camps in the search of peace and justice, far from education for children, possible livelihood opportunity and a healthy environment. Similarly, in the forests of Dandakaranya is a village which is primarily inhabited by surrendered left wing extremists, life there is harsh. The SDG 16 is dedicated to the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the provision of access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels. The HDR 1996 says - human development is the end-economic growth a means. We need to understand the concept of development diligently adding sustainability as an essential. This paper attempts to understand the current state of peace and inclusion in conflict areas of Left Wing Extremism in MP and CH, riot affected areas of Muzaffarnagar in UP and areas of forced displacement and rehabilitation in MP and UK. It looks to explore the possibilities of - provision for justice for all and building effective and accountable institutions at all levels of governance.
