The Pillars of Peace is a research framework produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace to describe what makes a society peaceful. The Equitable Distribution of Resources is one of the eight “pillars” identified by the research.
Equity describes the extent to which individuals and groups are treated fairly, regardless of their personal characteristics such as their social position, race, religion or gender. Note that this Pillar is not just about equitable income distributions but also education, life expectancy and opportunity more broadly.
