About IEP

The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) is a non-profit think tank 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.

National Peace Indices

IEP is developing a series of nation-specific peace indices which allow regional differences within countries to be measure and taken into account.

The Mexico Peace Index is the latest in the series of national peace indices, which also includes the US Peace Index and the UK Peace Index. National peace indices provide a comprehensive measure of peace at the subnational level and allow for a detailed analysis of peace over time.
