The Institute for Economics & Peace, The Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law, and The Hague Humanity Hub invite you to the Global Peace Index 2018 The Hague Launch. Steve Killelea, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Institute for Economics & Peace, will present the findings of the 12th edition of the Global Peace Index (GPI), the world’s leading measure of global peacefulness. This report presents the most comprehensive data-driven analysis to-date on trends in peace, its economic value, and how to develop peaceful societies. Join a diverse group of professionals to take part in an open discussion to review the following questions: – What are the links with the sustaining peace and sustainable development agenda’s and what impact do the findings have on these agenda’s? – The Dutch Government prioritizes “legitimate stability” as an objective of development interventions in fragile states. What are the focus areas for interventions that the GPI highlights? – What conditions are imperative for peaceful and stable lives, and where can Civil Society Organizations contribute to meeting those needs? – How should we interpret future changes in peacefulness in light of the new Dutch Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation agenda titled “Investeren in Perspectief”? – What new partnerships can be developed for building peace in the future and how can data from the GPI serve their goals?
