On 1 January 2016 the Sustainable Development Goals came into force, world leaders adopted them in 2015. After a long period of colonial oppression from the North sees the former colonies now have the opportunity to reach the same economic standards as their former colonial masters through industrial expansion. One of the problems that we discussed in this thesis is whether the South can continue its economic development while respecting the environment and the possible changes that may occur in the relationship between North and South in the matter of this global conflict. The aim of this thesis is that with the starting point in the post-colonial theory describe how the world looks like today and explain why it looks they way it does. In this thesis we are analysing if there is a tension between these goals, are certain goals more important to some people than others. We are applying the post-colonial theory on two of the UN’s sustainable development goals to see if we can find an answer to the problem. The final conclusion determines that the North due to colonial structures still holds the foremost power over international relations and influences which of the Sustainable Development Goals the world to a greater extent will put prioritize.
