Previously there has been little understanding of the main drivers of the transition to peace, but the release of the Positive Peace Report 2017 helps to shine a light on this perplexing question.
Governments and policymakers have long considered how nations transition from one state of peace to another. Why do some countries emerge from conflicts into peaceful societies, while others continue to exist in a highly fragile state? Understanding this question can help guide government expenditure to better create resilient societies, able to withstand internal and external shocks.
The report, which is officially launched at Stanford University today, analyses the factors associated with changes in peacefulness and how they differ across different types of societies. The report includes:
Why Positive Peace is transformational
Positive Peace Index, results and trends
Positive Peace and systems thinking
Empirically derived advantages of Positive Peace
Policy implications of Positive Peace
The analysis is crucial to building a framework for creating higher rates of development, and more peaceful societies. The aim of fostering peaceful societies is more than just an ideal for humanity – there are real economic benefits to be gained from a more peaceful world.
