2011 Global Peace Index

For the first time in five years, Iraq does not rank at the bottom of the Global Peace Index (published by the Institute for Economics and Peace).

The index is made up of 23 indicators, ranging from a nation's level of military expenditure to its relations with neighbouring countries and its level of respect for human rights.

Interesting, Libya saw the most significant drop, with Bahrain the next big offender. These drastic drops have been triggered by the Arab Spring- and the clash between governments and its citizens.
