Global Peace Index 2024


Institute for Economics & Peace - TRANSCEND Media Service

Conflict deaths at highest level this century causing world’s peacefulness to decline.

The world’s leading measure of global peacefulness.

This year is the 17th edition of the Global Peace Index, which ranks 163 independent states and territories according to their level of peacefulness. Produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) since 2007, the GPI is the world’s leading measure of global peacefulness.

The report presents the most comprehensive data-driven analysis to-date on trends in peace, its economic value, and how to develop peaceful societies. The GPI covers 163 countries comprising 99.7 per cent of the world’s population, using 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources, and measures the state of peace across three domains: the level of Societal Safety and Security; the extent of Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict; and the degree of Militarisation.

In addition to discussing the findings from the Index, the report also includes analysis of current conflicts and potential future conflicts, including current analysis of the likely economic impact of a Chinese blockade of Taiwan on the global economy.

The Global Peace Index launches in June each year.

  1. Of the first 21 “PEACE” countries listed, only two don’t promote war. The remaining 19 do a lot of war promoting: Ireland, Austria, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, Portugal, Denmark, Slovenia, Malaysia, Canada, Czechia,
    Finland, Hungary, Croatia, Belgium, Japan, Netherlands, Australia, Germany. Their artillery, explosives, missiles, army uniforms, helmets, war vehicles, kill millions, year after year.
