The Global Peace Index (GPI), the world’s leading measure of peace, ranks nations by their peacefulness and identifies some of the drivers of that peace.
The 2012 GPI, produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace, ranks 158 nations using 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators that gauge ongoing domestic and international conflict, safety and security. This sixth edition of the GPI has found that the world is slightly more peaceful. All regions apart from the Middle East and North Africa improved on levels of peacefulness. The sixth edition of the GPI launched with a new interactive map that allows users to explore peace over time and to look at the socio-economic indicators associated with peace.
