Global Peace Index 2009

The Global Peace Index (GPI) is an attempt to measure the relative position of nations’ and regions’ peacefulness. It is maintained by the Institute for Economics and Peace and developed in consultation with an international panel of peace experts from peace institutes and think tanks with data collected and analysed by the Economist Intelligence Unit. The list was launched first in May 2007 and then in May 2008 and recently on 2 June 2009 and is claimed to be the first study to rank countries around the world according to their peacefulness.

Ranking 2009:
1 = New Zealand
2 = Denmark & Norway
7 = Japan
8 = Canada
19 = Australia
23 = Singapore
26 = Malaysia
35 = United Kingdom
143 = Afganistan
144 = Iraq
