The Global Peace Index analyses the state of peace around the world as an attempt to measure the relative position of nations peacefulness. It was launched in 2007 and updated yearly. It's elaborated by the Institute for Economics and Peace.
The GPI comprises 22 indicators of the existence of absence violence or fear of violence. The indicators were originally selected with the assistance of an international panel of independent experts in 2007 and have been reviewed by the expert panel on an annual basis.
The Indicators are divided how at peace internally and externally a country is.
