Safety is something which all of us constantly keep in mind on day to day basis, irrespective of the fact where we go and where we live. In some countries moving about is quite safe, even on foot, while in others the thing is the complete opposite. So, is there an authentic source which can give us the true picture of each and every country when it comes to ‘Safety’ and ‘Peace’?
This question becomes a looming issue when one is planning a travel trip to some alien land, for many of us, finding a clear and satisfying answer proves a frustrating experience.
But now this task has been made easy by Visions of Humanity who have come up with a Map which gives a clear indication of every country’s Global Peace Index; its 2016 edition has covered all the 163 countries. Global Peace Index, covers various factors like the impact of terrorism, criminal activities, and political instability, to name a few, and hence for us, it has indeed succeeded in bringing out the true ‘picture’ of the countries when it comes to peacefulness. So have a look at the map given below and find the countries which are at the top and at the bottom of the GPI spectrum.
You can also check out the Global Peace Index’ fully interactive maps here.
