Jordan Makes Headway In Global Peace Index

(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency)

Amman, June 20 (Petra) -- Jordan moved up for the third year in a row on the Global Peace Index (GPI) in 2022 to be ranked third in the Arab world and 57 globally out of 163 countries listed in the report, moving six places over 2021.
Jordan ranked third amongst the countries in the MENA region, coming straight after Qatar and Kuwait and making a big leap since 2020 when it was fifth, then fourth in 2021.
Behind Jordan in the Middle East and North Africa come the UAE and Oman, respectively, to represent the five best countries in the region.
The GPI report is based on 23 criteria related to local peace and security and other external criteria, including a country's relationship with neighbouring countries.
Jordan strengthened its position on several security indicators, especially on the crime rates in society and the indicator of security and policemen, in which it received a very high score.
The report, published by the International Institute for Peace and Economics (IEP), noted that the global state of peace declined by 3.0, in which countries are ranked ascendingly from 1 to 5. The most stable country would get 1, and the least would get 5.
The index is aimed at measuring peace and security in the countries of the world. It is developed by the IEP in cooperation with an international team of experts and research centres.
