On 9 February, University of Coventry will be hosting a videoconference featuring Founder and Executive Chairman of the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), Steve Killelea, to discuss the findings of the Positive Peace Report 2022 which showcases the findings of IEP’s data-driven research, including the latest results of the Positive Peace Index, systems thinking, and the comparison and tracking of the factors that create flourishing societies.
Peace is much more than the absence of violence. Positive Peace describes the attitudes, structures and institutions that underpin and sustain peaceful societies. The IEP has developed a conceptual framework, known as the Pillars of Peace, that outlines a system of eight factors that work together to build positive peace. Derived from a statistical analysis of over 4,000 datasets, the Pillars of Peace provides a roadmap to overcome adversity and conflict, and to build lasting peace.
The Institute for Economics and Peace aims to create a paradigm shift in the way the world thinks about peace. We do this by developing global and national indices, calculating the economic cost of violence, analysing country level risk and fragility, and understanding Positive Peace.
