This year the Global Peace Index (GPI) outlines key 2020 highlights, global rankings, regional overviews as well as country improvements and deterioration. The research also focuses on trends, from 2008 until 2019. This year there are three new topics that the GPI will cover, with a focus on the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Positive Peace offers a framework for interpreting the pandemic and assessing the interconnectedness between events, responses, perceptions and beliefs. Positive Peace can not only help society understand what is happening now, but can also shine a light on how to best prepare society for future shocks.

Another new topic this year is civil unrest, with 2019 seeing a number of large of civil unrest events across the world. The research also looks at civil unrest over time and whether events like this are becoming more frequent and more violent.

The last new topic that the GPI looks at is the Ecological Threat Register (ETR) that IEP has developed, which combines a set of ecological risks with Positive Peace and economic coping capacity, to better understand where future potential risks and fragilities may occur. Trends will be estimated through to 2050. This body of work will be a first release in a series which will be further developed and enhanced in the coming years.

The Rt Hon. Lord Browne of Ladyton will provide the opening address for the webinar, with Founder & Executive Chairman Steve Killelea, AM  delivering a presentation on this year’s Global Peace Index trends and key findings.

Senior Research Fellow Thomas Morgan will join Steve Killelea for Q+A session following the presentation.
