Peace Session – Can Peace Be Measured?
September 25 @ 12:30 - 15:00 AESTFree
Sunday 25 September, Peace Session at 12.30pm: Can Peace be Measured?
This will be the focus of a peace session at the Meeting House about the Global Peace Index. The Institute for Economics and Peace (based in Sydney) has been issuing the Index since 2007. It uses three broad themes – the level of safety and security in society, the extent of domestic or international conflict, and the degree of militarization.
The 2022 update covers 163 countries (which represent over 99% of the global population) and includes an analysis of the conflict in Ukraine. The overall assessment of peacefulness indicates that 90 are improving, 71 deteriorating, and 2 stable.
David Purnell from the Quaker Peace and Legislation Committee will introduce the conversation and encourage discussion. The gathering will be held at the Turner Meeting House.
