The average country score improved by -0.09 per cent, with 86 countries improving, and 76 recording deteriorations. Over the last ten years, the average level of global peacefulness has deteriorated by 3.78%.
Iceland remains the most peaceful country in the world, while Afghanistan is now the least peaceful country in the world, replacing Syria, which is now the second least peaceful.
Hungary is listed in the quite illustrious 21th place.
The GPI covers 99.7% of the world’s population, measuring the state of peace using three thematic domains: the level of Societal Safety and Security; the extent of Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict; and the degree of Militarisation.
