- About Us
The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) is a non-profit research organization dedicated to shifting the world’s focus to peace as a positive, achievable, and tangible measure of human well-being and progress.
It achieves its goals by developing new conceptual frameworks to define peacefulness; providing metrics for measurement; uncovering the relationship between peace, business and prosperity, and by promoting a better understanding of the cultural, economic and political factors that drive peacefulness.
IEP is developing a series of nation-specific peace indices which allow regional differences within countries to be measure and taken into account.
The recently released United Kingdom Peace Index (UKPI) explores the fabric of peace in the UK over the last decade. The United States Peace Index (USPI), ranks all 50 states of the U.S. based on their levels of peace.
