The Global Peace Index is an ambitious effort to measure peacefulness around the world using quantitative data. Now in its 15th year, the Global Peace Index has offered policymakers and analysts a useful way to measure key trends in peace and conflict.
A few weeks back, Institute for Economics and Peace released the 2021 Global Peace Index based on data from last year. Steve Killelea, founder and executive director of the Institute for Economics and Peace, is on the podcast to discuss the report’s findings and what it suggests about trends in peace and conflict around the world.
We kick off discussing how the data is collected before having a deeper conversation about the key findings from the new Global Peace Index.
