Peaceful Portugal

It’s official – Portugal is the 3rd most peaceful country in the world – again!

The Global Peace Index (GPI), which ranks 163 independent states and territories according to their level of peacefulness has produced reports for 14 years and presents the most comprehensive data-driven analysis on trends in peace, its economic value and how to develop peaceful societies.

The GPI covers 99.7 per cent of the world’s population, using 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources and 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.

In addition to presenting the findings from the 2020 GPI, this year’s report included an analysis of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on peace. It examined the impact of the pandemic and in particular, how its economic consequences will increase the risk of severe deteriorations in Positive Peace over the next few years. It also looked at which countries are best placed to recover from the shock. Therefore Portugal’s position makes it an exceptional country for anyone looking to make a safe investment.

With the findings of the report placing Portugal as the 3rd most peaceful country in the world, after Iceland and New Zealand, it is clear that Portugal has many more advantages other than its temperate climate, its gracious and friendly people and its political stability.
