The Institute for Economics and Peace in collaboration with the Office of the Special Adviser on the Preparations for the Commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations (UN75) is pleased to invite you to the online 2020 US launch of the Global Peace Index on the 11th June 2020 at 4:30pm EDT.
Key speakers for this launch will be Steve Killelea AM, Founder & Executive Chairman, Institute for Economics and Peace, Fabrizio Hochschild-Drummond, Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on the Commemoration of the United Nations 75th Anniversary and Professor ‘Funmi Olonisakin, Vice-President and Vice-Principal International and Professor of Security, Leadership and Development at King’s.
This is the fourteenth edition of the Global Peace Index (GPI), which ranks 163 independent states and territories according to their level of peacefulness. Produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), it presents the most comprehensive data-driven analysis to-date on trends in peace, its economic value, and how to develop peaceful societies. As such, it provides critical insight into the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead as we work towards the Future We Want and the UN We Need.
In addition to presenting the findings from the 2020 GPI, this year’s report will include an analysis of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on peace, including Positive Peace: the attitudes, institutions, and structures that create and sustain peaceful societies. It will examine how the impact of the pandemic, and in particular its economic consequences will increase the risk of severe deteriorations in Positive Peace over the next few years, and also examines which countries are best placed to recover from the shock.
The report will also outline IEP’s newest research report– the Ecological Threat Register (ETR), which combines a confluence of ecological risks with Positive Peace and economic coping capacity to better understand what future potential risks and fragilities nations will face up to and beyond the UN’s 100th year.
Arising from the ETR, a multi-stakeholder partnership, in which UN75 is collaborating, will focus on promoting the policy, investments and programming necessary to help nations better face these challenges in the years to come.
Please join us as we explore the state of peace today and discuss how we can jointly help build the lasting peace of tomorrow.
