Institute for Economics & Peace, Global Peace Index 2016, June 2016

Subject: Peacebuilding

The Institute's annual report places Afghanistan as the 4th least peaceful country, and records a deterioration in the country's overall peace score. While still accounting for a small percentage of the total number of global violent deaths, terrorism has grown steadily over the past decade and the majority of terrorist activity is highly concentrated in five countries: Iraq, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria. In addition a re-escalation of the conflict environment in Afghanistan saw a 427 per cent increase in yearly internal conflict deaths from the 2008 to 2016, from 4,210 to 22,170.
