Canada Launch of the Global Peace Index : Measuring peace in a complex world

The Index outlines key 2020 highlights, global rankings, regional overviews as well as country improvements and deterioration in peace. Uniquely, this edition will cover three new topics: trends in civil unrest, ecological threats, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
