Please join us on October 7th, 2019 from 12pm-1pm in 177 Huntington Avenue for a brief lecture from Elina Mariutsa. This is an educational lecture about the 2019 Global Peace Index (GPI) report. GPI is the world’s leading measure of global peacefulness, ranking 163 countries and territories according to their level of relative peacefulness. Produced annually by the Institute for Economics and Peace, the GPI covers 99.7% of the world’s population and presents the most comprehensive data-driven analysis to-date on trends in peace as well as its economic value. The GPI measures the absence of violence (negative peace) using 23 indicators across three domains: Societal Safety and Security; Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict; and Militarization. The report also includes a statistical analysis of Positive Peace – defined as the attitudes, institutions, and structures that correlate to the world’s most peaceful societies. A broader and more ambitious concept, Positive Peace represents the capacity for a society to meet the needs of its citizens and to address grievances without the use of violence. Key findings and trends from the 2019 GPI will be presented, along with an analysis of Positive Peace and the linkages between these bodies of research.
