“”The 2015 Global Peace Index reveals a divided world, with the most peaceful countries enjoying increasing levels of peace and prosperity, while the least peaceful countries spiral into violence and conflict. Explore the state of world peace on the interactive Global Peace Index map. www.visionofhumanity.org “
The Middle East and North Africa is now the world’s least peaceful region for the first time since the Index began, due to an increase in civil unrest and terrorist activity while Europe, the world’s most peaceful region, has reached historically high levels of peace. This might not seem shocking, but there is a great richness to this dataset that can provide detailed regional information as well as answer some big questions about global security. Explore the data on your own with this interactive map of Global Peace or also of the states within the United States.
