Global Peace Index (GPI)

Global Peace Index (GPI):

The 15th edition of the Global Peace Index (GPI) was released which ranks 163 independent states and territories according to their level of peacefulness. Global Peace Index (GPI) is a report produced by the Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP).

  • The GPI covers 99.7 per cent of the world’s population, using 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators and measures the state of peace across three domains:
    • the level of Societal Safety and Security,
    • the extent of Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict, and
    • the degree of Militarisation.


  • India ranked 135/163 with an improvement of 2 ranks.
  • Iceland remains the most peaceful country in the world, a position it has held since 2008.
  • Afghanistan is the least peaceful country in the world for the fourth consecutive year, followed by Yemen, Syria, South Sudan, and Iraq.
