All blog posts by peaceportal

For the second year in a row, the total number of global deaths from terrorism has declined. There have been 22% fewer deaths from terrorism since the peak of terror activity in 2014.

There were significant declines in terrorism in four of the five countries most impacted by terrorism - Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. Collectively these four countries recorded 33 per cent fewer deaths. The intensity of global terrorism has decreased. However, it continues to spread to an increasing number of countries. There were 77 countries that experienced at least one death from terrorism in 2016. This is more than at any time in the past 17 years with two out of every three countries experiencing at least one attack. 
 

Global Terrorism Index 2017

The report, which is officially launched at the Royal United Services Institute in London, is a comprehensive summary of the key global trends and patterns in terrorism over the last 17 years.

 

 

The report includes: 

  •  Global results and trends
  •  Terrorism trends in Europe and other developed countries 
  •  Characteristics driving terrorism recruitment 
  •  Profiles of the four most deadly terrorist groups 
  •  Economics of terrorism
     

Measuring 163 countries and covering 99.7% of the world's population, one of the principle aims of the Global Terrorism Index is to help us to understand the global, regional and local impact of terrorism. With this understanding we can inform a positive practical debate about the future of terrorism and importantly, how we respond.

 

The full report is now available for download. A summary four-page snapshot is also available highlighting the key trends and findings. Digital assets also feature an interactive map as well as key charts and images that are available for sharing.
