PostSubject: The most and least peaceful countries in the world, ranked   Mon Nov 07, 2016 8:09 pm

According to this year's edition of an annual report from the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), Botswana, Kuwait, Morocco, Kazakhstan, Vietnam, Angola, and Burkina Faso all have one surprising thing in common: They are more peaceful than the US.



The Global Peace Index from the IEP compiles yearly rankings of peacefulness in 162 nations based on 23 different types of data.

The IEP attempts to answer a simple question: Is the world getting more or less peaceful?

While the most peaceful nations in the world are growing more peaceful, with some reaching historic highs, the least peaceful countries are descending further into chaos and war.

The report also includes an analysis of the economic impact of containing and dealing with the consequences of global violence. Last year violence containment was estimated to cost $13.6 trillion, which is approximately 13.3% of the world's gross domestic product.

Here's a look at the highlights of the report (and here's the full report):
Europe holds a virtual monopoly on the world's most peaceful countries.



Nations like Vietnam and Kosovo that were mired in ugly conflicts decades ago have bounced back and have become relatively peaceful.


The US ranked 113 out of 163 nations.


The least peaceful nations are almost all in Africa and the Middle East.


Again, Iceland tops the list as the most peaceful country on Earth.
