Join us to discuss the findings of the Global Peace Index and the implications of the Covid-19 crisis on peace and political, environmental, economic and societal stability
Produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), the Global Peace Index (GPI) report presents one of the most comprehensive data-driven analysis on trends in peace, its economic value, and how to develop peaceful societies. The report also outlines a study on the evolution of civil unrest over the past decade and IEP's Ecological Threat Register (ETR) report. The ETR illustrates the intersection between ecological risk and societal risk, which can impact on the economic performance and peace.
In addition to the findings from the GPI 2020, the webinar will include an overview of the COVID-19 & Peace report. In this report, IEP outlines the global impact of the pandemic, resilience and coping capabilities of countries, and changes in socio-economic systems and in patterns of conflict and violence. It also examines key aspects of the post-pandemic world and comments on forward-looking initiatives to reshape the global economy.
The recent publication of the Global Peace Index finds that globally peacefulness has fallen, with a sustained rise in civil unrest in the last decade. This is set to worsen as the economic impact of COVID-19 takes hold.
What will this mean for global peace, and what are the political, economic and societal implications for the UK and Ireland?
Leading the panel in discussion was Serge Stroobants, Director Europe and MENA from the Institute for Economics & Peace. He was joined by Dr Andrew Thomson and Professor Michael Semple of the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice and Mr Enda Young of the William J. Clinton Leadership Institute. The panel will review the findings of the annual Global Peace Index (GPI) report, and discuss in particular the outlook for our part of the world.
