How Do We Measure Peace? The Pillars of Peace and the Global Peace Index
While the drivers and impact of violence receive widespread attention, there is comparatively little research on the factors that create and sustain peaceful societies. Michelle Breslauer will present the work of the Institute for Economics and Peace to measure and map national peacefulness and to identify the attitudes, institutions, and structures most closely associated with peace.
