The Global Peace Index (GPI) is the first-ever analysis to methodically rank countries on their peacefulness and identify potential determinants of peace. Comprised of a range of indicators measuring the absence of violence in society, the GPI takes into consideration both internal and external factors, and measures 99% of the world’s population.  

For the first time, this year’s report includes a Positive Peace Index, highlighting the key institutional factors associated with creating peaceful and resilient societies. The Positive Peace Index ranks countries by their institutional capacity to move away from violence and towards peace.


The Global Peace Index is produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), guided by an international expert panel of independent experts and supported by the Economist Intelligence Unit, which collates the data and calculates the rankings in conjunction with the IEP.

Please contact Michelle Breslauer,, or (646) 963-2160 with any question.
