Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law

Measuring Peace

Organization: Secretariat of the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law

‘The Platform hosted an interactive discussion on 23 June 2016 in The Hague, exploring the challenges and opportunities of measuring peace through indexes. The discussion, moderated by Rob Sijstermans of Clingendael, centered around three indexes;

Global Peace Index (GPI) by the Institute for Economics and Peace
Flourishing Community Index (FCI) by Cordaid
Fragile States Index (FSI) by The Fund for Peace

outlining the motivations behind their development, difficulties in the process and what these indexes have to offer to policy-making and program development in the field. Camilla Schippa, Director of the Institute for Economics & Peace officially launched the latest Global Peace Index at The Hague Institute for Global Justice the following morning.’
