Kuwait Ranks High in Global Peace Index

Posted by Mark

While the world is becoming less peaceful, Kuwait moved up a few spots and came in 37th place out of 162 in the most recent Global Peace Index report (Iceland came first). The peace index uses a variety of different stats to generate an overall ranking including:

- Level of organised conflict
- Relations with neighbouring countries
- Level of perceived criminality in society
- Political instability
- Terrorist activity
- Number of homicides per 100,000 people
- Level of violent crime
- Likelihood of violent demonstrations
- Number of jailed population per 100,000 people
- Nuclear and heavy weapons capability
- Ease of access to small arms and light weapons

Amongst our neighboring states Kuwait ranks 3rd behind Qater (19) and UAE (36). For their full findings and stats visit their website [Here]

    Considering the number of jailed population per 100,000 ppl….well,
    I guess this country doesn’t qualify as peaceful anymore…where the residents are terrorized by the authorities themselves… harassed and humiliated.
    They have a right to clean up the illegal mess they put themselves into…but the manner in which they r doing it…is unacceptable.
