Global Peace Index 2023
Measuring peace in a complex world
Research is central to our mission, driven by a dedicated team developing global and national indices.
Research and Positive Peace are the twin engines propelling the Institute for Economics & Peace.
Our research team is at the heart of IEP’s mission, led by its landmark work on Positive Peace, a transformational concept that identifies eight critical factors – Pillars of Positive Peace – for establishing enduring peace. Based on extensive data analysis and empirically based, Positive Peace shifts the focus away from the negative to the positive aspects that create the conditions for a society to flourish.
Due to its systemic nature, improvements in Positive Peace not only strengthen peace, but are also associated with many other desirable outcomes for society, such as higher GDP growth, better measures of wellbeing and greater resilience. Through a prism of Positive Peace, IEP’s research is fundamentally changing ways of thinking about global issues.
