We invite you to join the Institute for Economics and Peace and the Diplomatic Courier Magazine to attend The Future of Peace Summit: Celebrating Ten Years of the Global Peace Index. Marking the 10th edition of the Global Peace Index, this Summit will discuss the major challenges and opportunities for peace in the decade ahead.

Summit Overview

This Summit marks the 10th edition of the Global Peace Index, the world’s leading measure of country peacefulness, and will discuss the major challenges and opportunities for peace in the decade ahead. While this event will highlight the conceptual and practical contributions made by the Global Peace Index, its focus will be on the main challenges and opportunities for peace over the next decade.
