What is Global Peace Index?

Global Peace Index is commonly known as GPI. It is the measurement of the peacefulness of a nation, region, territory, or country. It is annually produced by the Institute of Economics and Peace (IEP). GPI is calculated by almost 23 different key factors (Qualitative and Quantitative) from highly respected and authentic resources throughout the globe. GPI is a very authentic measurement to understand the peacefulness and safety of a country.
