Europe is the most peaceful region in the world
Global Peace Index (GPI) ranks 163 independent states and territories according to their level of peacefulness.
The GPI covers 99.7 percent of the world’s population, measuring peacefulness according to three factors: the level of social safety and security; the extent of ongoing domestic and international conflict; and the degree of militarization.
