Global #Peace Index 2017 @GlobPeaceIndex

GPI

GPI hi

The 2017 Global Peace Index finds that the world became more peaceful in the last year, however, over the last decade it has become significantly less peaceful.

The 2017 GPI provides a comprehensive analysis on the state of peace. It shows that amidst continuing social and political turmoil, the world continues to spend enormous resources on creating and containing violence but very little on peace. The key to reversing the decline in peace is through building Positive Peace – a holistic framework of the key attitudes, institutions and structures which build peace in the long term. The 2017 GPI finds:

  • The world slightly improved in peace last year but has become less peaceful over the last decade
  • There has been a decline in militarisation over the past three decades
  • Globally, the economic impact of violence on the economy is enormous
  • Current peacebuilding spending focused on building peace is well below the optimal level
  • Falls in Positive Peace make countries susceptible to populist political movements
