November 17, 2016

On Thursday 17 November, The Hague Institute welcomes Daniel Hyslop, Research Director at the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), to present findings from the Global Terrorism Index 2016, the world’s leading metric for policymakers in their efforts to track and understand how to measure the impacts and underlying drivers of terrorism. This year’s report explores the economic impact of terrorism on global and national economies, and provides a comprehensive overview of the current terrorist threat, exploring the impact of ISIS, Boko Haram and other non-state terrorist organisations.

Produced by the Institute for Economics & Peace the Global Terrorism Index scores 163 countries over the past 16 years (from 2001 to 2016) using data from 1998 to 2015. It scores countries by aggregating the number of terrorist incidents, number of fatalities, injuries and the amount of property damage and then weighting the results over five years with the highest weighting being the most recent year.

Following Daniel Hyslop’s presentation, the following experts will share their thoughts and expertise in a moderated discussion:

Ms. Ingrid van Engelshoven, Deputy Mayor at the Municipality of The Hague
Dr. Alastair Reed, Acting Director of The International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT)
Ms. Amy Cunningham, Senior Advisor at the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF)

Moderated by: Dr. David Connolly, Head of Research at The Hague Institute
