The Global Peace Index ranks the world’s safest countries. The Institute for Economics and Peace, which is “an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to moving the world’s focus to peace as a positive, feasible, and quantifiable measure of human wellbeing and progress,” publishes this study every year. The study looks at countries to see which are the safest, as well as which are the most dangerous.
The study includes information on 163 countries. There are 23 distinct indications used to assess whether a country is safe or harmful. These factors are categorized as follows: Militarization, ongoing international conflict, and societal safety and security. The number of internal and foreign violent conflicts, the level of distrust, political instability, the potential for terrorist actions, the number of homicides, and military spending as a percentage of GDP were all considered to construct this report.
For each of the 163 countries included in the report, a score is derived based on these characteristics. In terms of safety, the lower the score, the higher the country’s ranking.
The top 25 safest countries are mostly European countries. Since 2009, Europe is the only continent where safety has not decreased. Asia is the second-most-common region in the top 25. Homicide rates in both areas are around 3 per 100,000 people. The Nordic countries of Europe are particularly noteworthy.
This region is considered the safest in the globe since Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, and Finland are all among the top 25 safest countries in the world. Homicides occur at a rate of 0.8 per 100,000 people in this area. These five Nordic countries are all among the world’s top ten happiest nations.
