    Scores are from 1-5, with 1 being the most peaceful and 5 the most violent. The Global Peace Index (GPI) measures more than just the presence or absence of war. It captures the absence of violence or the fear of violence across three domains: Safety and Security, Ongoing Conflict, and Militarization.
