2014 Global Peace Index: Seven Year Trend in Violence Overturns 60 Years of Increasing Peacefulness

Terrorist activity, the number of conflicts fought, and the number of refugees and displaced persons were the key contributors to the continuing deterioration in global peacefulness last year. This confirms a gradual, but significant downward slide over the past seven years, which overturns a 60-year trend of increasing global peacefulness dating back to the end of WWII.

The economic impact of containing and dealing with the consequences of global violence last year was estimated to be US$9.8 trillion, according to the latest Global Peace Index (GPI). This is equivalent to 11.3% of global GDP – equal to twice the size of the 54 countries in the African economy.  See the news release to get the full results.
