The 2016 Global Peace Index (GPI) is the tenth edition of the world’s leading study on global levels of peacefulness. The GPI now ranks 163 nations and territories using 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources, which gauge three broad themes: (a) the level of safety and security in society; (b) the extent of domestic or international conflict; and (c) the degree of militarization (see tables 6.5 and 6.6). 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 and synthesizing new information on the state of peace at the national and global levels, the IEP hopes to contribute to a better understanding of how civil society, researchers, policymakers and governments can create a more peaceful society.
