Global Peace Index 2017 Berlin Launch

Tilman Brück will chair the Launch of Global Peace Index 2017 which will take place on Monday, 26 June 2017 at Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) in Berlin. In the 2017 Global Peace Index, Germany maintains its traditional top spot as the 6th most peaceful and peace-supporting country globally. In the middle of an election campaign that is partly fought over whether or not to double military spending in less than a decade to meet NATO’s 2% goal, the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi), the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) and the International Security and Development Center (ISDC) are very pleased to invite you for a presentation and discussion of this year’s Global Peace Index.

The 2017 report provides the rankings of 163 countries according to levels of peacefulness over the last 10 years, using qualitative and quantitative indicators. It presents the most comprehensive data-driven analysis to-date on trends in peace, its economic value and how to develop peaceful societies.

Presenter: Steve Killelea, Chairman and Founder of the Institute for Economics and Peace
Discussant: Philipp Rotmann, Associate Director of the Global Public Policy Institute
Chair: Tilman Brück, Director of the International Security and Development Center

Kindly register your participation at events@economicsandpeace.org by 17 June 2017. Only 25 seats are available.
