The 2014 Global Peace Index (GPI) is the eighth edition of the world’s leading study on global levels of peacefulness. The GPI ranks 162 states using 22 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources, which gauge three broad themes: the level of safety and security in society; the extent of domestic or international conflict; and the degree of militarization (see table 4.9 and 4.10). The GPI is produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), guided by an international panel of independent experts and supported by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), which collates the data and calculates the rankings in conjunction with the IEP.1 By generating new information on the state of peace at the national and global levels, the IEP seeks to make a valuable contribution to an improved understanding of how civil society, researchers, policy makers and government can create a more peaceful society.
