We prove Arakelov inequalities for systems of Hodge bundles over algebraic varieties, generalizing the classical ones for families of semistable curves and abelian varieties. These inequalities are derived from the semistability of an associated Higgs bundle, a consequence of the existence of a Hermitian Yang-Mills metric.
