By Chioma Okwu

'Ghana ranks 4 as the most peaceful country in Africa' according to the Global Peace Index(GPI).

Global Peace Index (GPI) measures the relative position of nations' and regions' peacefulness.

The GPI ranks 163 independent states and territories (99.7 percent of the world’s population) according to their levels of peacefulness. In the past decade, the GPI has presented trends of increased global violence and less peacefulness.

The GPI is a report produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) and developed in consultation with an international panel of peace experts from peace institutes and think tanks with data collected and collated by the Economist Intelligence Unit. The Index was first launched in May 2007, with subsequent reports being released annually. In 2017 it ranked 163 countries, up from 121 in 2007.

The 2019 GPI indicates Iceland, New Zealand, Portugal, Austria, and Denmark to be the most peaceful countries and Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria, South Sudan, Yemen, and Iraq to be the least peaceful.

In sub-Saharan Africa, Mauritius holds the top spot for the most peaceful country and placed 24th in the overall rankings worldwide.

Ghana was ranked fourth after Mauritius, Malawi, and Botswana respectively in the most peaceful country in Africa and placed 44th in the world. 

South Africa was ranked 32nd out of 44 African countries, and 127th in the global rankings while Nigeria was ranked 148.
