2015 Global Terrorism Index Media Pack


Now in its third year, the Global Terrorism Index, developed by the Institute for Economics and Peace is a comprehensive summary of the impact of terrorism in 162 countries (covering 99% of the world’s population) in terms of lives lost, injuries, property damage and number of incidents. It investigates the patterns of terrorism by geographic activity, methods of attack, organisations involved and the national economic and political context.

This year’s edition includes further analysis on the drivers of terrorism, the impact of terrorism in the areas international jihadist groups have labelled as the West, as well as estimates of the economic costs of terrorism. In addition, it features essays from leading academics and applied researchers to help contextualise terrorism and provide approaches to countering terrorism and violent extremism.
