Global Peace Index:World has Become Less Peaceful(link))

Global Peace Index (GPI) is the world’s leading  measure of national peacefulness. Now in its seventh year, it ranks 162 nations according to their ‘absence of violence’.

The GPI is developed by IEP under the guidance of an international panel of independent experts with data collated and calculated by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). It is composed of 22 indicators, ranging from a nation’s level of military expenditure to its relations with neighbouring countries and the percentage of prison population.
