What is the State of Global Peace?-Launch Event of the 2016 Global Peace Index

GCSP Public Discussion

The Geneva Centre for Security Policy, the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform and the Maison de la Paix Hub on Sustainable Development Goals are delighted to invite you to the launch of the 2016 Global Peace Index.

Is the world becoming more peaceful? What are the structural drivers of peace? What are the implications of measuring peace for the Sustainable Development Goals?

On the occasion of the release of the 10th edition of the Global Peace Index, the Institute for Economics and Peace will reflect on 10 years of trends in global conflict, drivers of peaceful societies.  The 2016 report will examine trends in the past decade, provide the rankings of 163 nations of the world according to levels of peacefulness, measure the impact of conflict on the global economy, and assess whether peace can be measured as a development goal.

The 2016 Global Peace Index report shows countries and regions that have improved or deteriorated in their levels of peace since 2015, and the founding elements of positive peace and systems thinking. 

The Global Peace Index is intended to contribute to the public debate on peace, and we invite you to join us for a discussion of the 2016 Global Peace Index with Steve Killelea, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Institute for Economics and Peace.
