Georgia Is on the 142nd Place in Global Peace Index

18.01.2011
British newspaper Guardian publishes Global Peace Index where Georgia occupied the 142nd place.

The newspaper published the list of countries based on the survey of the Peace and Economy Institute. The index for Georgia was estimated 2.970 and it occupied the 142nd place among 149 states; Russia is on the 143rd place.

The peace index has fallen in Georgia and Russia as well as in Cyprus, Philippines and Syria.

On the list of peaceful countries Armenia occupied the 113 place, Azerbaijan – 119th place and Turkey – 126th place.

Lithuania (42nd), Estonia (with 46th) and Latvia (54th) are the most peaceful post-soviet states.

The USA occupied the 85th place on the list of Peace and Economy Institute.

According to the Institute, the top ten peaceful states are New Zealand, Japan, Austria, Norway, Ireland, Luxemburg, Denmark, Sweden and Finland.

Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad, Georgia, Russia, Israeli, Pakistan, Sudan, Afghanistan, Somali and Iraq are the last top peaceful states.

It's made up of 23 indicators, ranging from a nation's level of military expenditure to its relations with neighbouring countries and the level of respect for human rights. The index has been tested against a range of potential "drivers" or determinants of peace—including levels of democracy and transparency, education and national wellbeing.
