Portugal is the 7th Most Peaceful Country in the World!

Source: Vision of Humanity The conclusion comes from the Australia-based Institute for Economics and Peace, which has published the latest update of the Global Peace Index. In this report, Portugal moves up one position compared to last year but remains far from the third place reached in 2020. In the Global Peace Index analysis, Portugal is also the fourth country in a table that addresses the field of militarization. In recent years, Portugal has emerged as one of the top climbers in the Global Peace Index, moving from 18th place in 2014 to the top 10. Ranking above the average for industrialized nations in terms of housing, work-life balance, personal safety, and environmental quality, Portugal is also considered a top destination for its overall quality of life. The ranking of the Institute for Economics and Peace ranking is once again topped by Iceland. In second place, Ireland gave way to Denmark and dropped one position, while New Zealand climbed four places to fourth. The world’s leading measure of global peace covers 163 independent states and territories home to 99.7% of the world’s population. The ranking, which is based on 23 indicators grouped into three criteria (societal safety and security; extent of ongoing domestic and international conflict; and degree of militarization), shows 84 countries recording improvement and 79 showing deterioration.
