your own PEACE community
This new community on the Peace Portal is dedicated to tools and case studies compiled by GPPAC Members and designed to support civil society organisations to carry out conflict analysis and to mobilise different groups and agencies for conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
The 2016 Global Peace Index (GPI) shows the world became less peaceful in the last year, reinforcing the underlying trend of declining peace over the last decade. Results also show a growing global inequality in peace, with the most peaceful countries continuing to improve while the least peaceful are falling into greater violence and conflict.
The 2016 GPI report provides a comprehensive update on the state of peace. It shows that amidst the global deterioration the world continues to spend enormous resources on creating and containing violence but very little on peace.
