What Is Peace Literacy?

Peace Literacy is a new approach to both peace and education, informed by three models:

  • Literacy education in reading and writing
  • West Point leadership training
  • Nonviolence strategies of Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi

Peace Literacy builds on the strengths of these three models:

  • Viewing peace not simply as a goal, but as a skill-set
  • Teaching a strategic approach to peacemaking
  • Focusing on and integrating well-being at the personal, social, and political levels

Measuring Peace

Measuring Peace

Measuring peace at the global and national level allows us to assess the social, political and economic factors that create peace. Each year the Institute for Economics and Peace produces the Global Peace Index, the world’s leading measure of national peacefulness, ranking 163 countries according to their levels of peace. A series of national peace indices have also been developed to explore the fabric of peace at the subnational level.
