On the Global Peace Index, developed by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) - the world's leading measurement of country peacefulness.

The Global Peace Index, developed by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP, is the world's leading measurement of country peacefulness. Through this, IEP has also created the first global, quantitative approach to measuring Positive Peace based on the social factors that have strongest statistically significant relationships with the absence of violence. Murray will present on why and how the IEP measures peace, the development of its thinking on the properties of Positive Peace and how well-developed Positive Peace represents the capacity for a society to meet the needs of citizens, reduce the number of grievances that arise and resolve remaining disagreements without the use of violence.
