Global Peace Index 2024 Europe launch

Join an expert panel to discuss the key findings from the Global Peace Index 2024.  This years’ report reveals that the world is at a crossroads. Without concerted effort, there is a risk of a surge in major conflicts. Next to the annual global and regional results and longer-term trends, the GPI will this year also highlight the changing nature of conflicts, tensions in the Middle East and increasing global military capability. We are pleased to continue our partnership with the Institute for Economics & Peace to launch and discuss the new annual Global Peace Index (GPI). The GPI report presents the most comprehensive data-driven analysis to date on peace, its economic value, trends, and how to develop peaceful societies. The report covers 99.7% of the world's population and uses 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources to compile the Index. These indicators are grouped into three key domains: Ongoing Conflict, Safety and Security, and Militarization. The session will start with a presentation of the 2024 GPI, followed by an expert panel discussion and a Q&A session. A light lunch will be served from 12:30 to 13:00. Speakers Serge Stroobants, Director, Europe and MENA Region, Institute of Economics and Peace Itonde Kakoma, President, Interpeace Kate Gilmore, Former Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Moderator Ms Annika Hilding Norberg, Head of Peace Operations and Peacebuilding, GCSP
