What’s the Global Peace Index?

The Global Peace Index (GPI) is an internationally recognized report published annually by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP). It is a benchmark study that measures national peace levels across 163 countries. The report thus covers about 99.7% of the world’s population (according to World Population Review).

The study uses 23 indicators of peace to determine the rank of countries on the index. These indicators are split into 3 broad categories: 1) Ongoing International and Domestic Conflict, 2) Societal Safety, and 3) Security, and Militarization. The latest GPI report was released in June 2021.
