Global Truce 2012
The Institute for Economics and Peace and Peace One Day
IEP and Peace One Day are working together to provide an independent assessment of the global security situation in relation to the Global Truce 2012. IEP will compile and collate in-country data relating to the observance of the Global Truce within civil society and amongst parties to conflict. It will specifically look at the global impact and the economic benefits of a day of Global Truce.

About Global Truce 2012
On Peace Day 2008, the United Nations Department for Safety and Security, which monitors security related incidents, recorded a 70% reduction in violent incidents in Afghanistan; it is this recorded reduction in violent incidents that has prompted the call for a Global Truce on Peace Day 2012, what is hoped will be the largest reduction in global violence in recorded history – from violence in homes, communities and schools, through to armed conflict.
See the Peace One Day website for further details on Global Truce 2012.
Recently released IEP publicationsThe Economic Cost of Violence Containment provides a comprehensive assessment of the global cost of violence.
