Conference with Mr Steve Killelea A.M., Institute for Economics and Peace. The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP www.economicsandpeace.org) was founded in 2007 by Mr Steve Killelea. The IEP is an international think tank dedicated to building a greater understanding of the interconnection between business, peace and economics with particular emphasis on the economic benefits of peace.
Produced by the Institute the Global Terrorism Index scores 162 countries over the last 14 years (from 2001 to 2014). It scores countries by aggregating the number of terrorist incidents, number of fatalities, injuries and the amount of property damage and then weighting the results over five years with the highest weighting being the most recent year.
The Terrorism Index will be used to explore significant correlations with other important indicators such as education, poverty, governance, etc. Moreover, it will uncover trends in terrorism over the last 14 years, allowing analysis of which regions and countries have seen to biggest growth/reduction in terrorism.
The lecture will be given in English with simultaneous translation into French and Dutch. Parking is available.
