The GLOBAL PEACE INDEX report is based on 23 criteria related to local peace and security in addition to external criteria, including the relationship with neighboring countries.
Jordan has strengthened its position in a number of security indicators, the most important of which is the indicator of the spread of crime in society, as well as the indicator of security and policemen, in which it received a very high evaluation at the level of the countries of the world, outperforming a large number of developed countries.
The report issued by the International Institute for Peace and Economics (IEP) in Australia indicated that the global state of peace declined by 3.0, on the scale in which countries are ranked from (1 - 5), so that the most stable country gets a degree of 1 and the least stable country rises up to 5 degrees.
The GLOBAL PEACE INDEX represents an attempt to measure peace and security in the countries of the world. It is prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, in cooperation with an international team of experts, and study centers in the field of peace and conflict.
It is noteworthy that Jordan has achieved great development in recent years in many international indicators and reports related to security and peace, the most important of which was its advancement to the second place in the Arab world and the sixteenth internationally on the Gallup index to classify citizens' trust in security and police men, and confidence in society.
The data indicate that Jordan will continue its progress this year in a number of indicators and reports related to peace and security, which are expected to be issued, and depend on the analysis of a large number of information and security indicators between countries.
