Qatar has been ranked the first in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and 29th globally in the Global Peace Index (GPI) for the year 2021.
Issued by the Institute of Economics and Peace in Australia, the 2021 report covered 163 countries. The report measures the state of peace across three domains: the level of Societal Safety and Security, the extent of Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict, and the degree of Militarisation.
For the thirteenth year in a row, Qatar maintained its first rank in the MENA region, and occupied advanced positions at the global level during the same period, by achieving high ratings that surpassed many developed countries in low crime rates, and achieved advance ranks at the global level in the GPI as it scored high ranks in different quantitative and qualitative indicators of peacefulness.
