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. 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.
