According to the 2021 Economic Value of Peace report, these are the ten countries that have had the largest changes in their economic cost of violence from 2007.
Since 2007, nine out of the ten countries with the largest change in their economic cost have recorded increases with the exception of Bhutan who improved. Syria recorded the largest percentage point increase.
Conversely, Bhutan’s economic cost of violence decreased by 15 percentage points, from 23% of gross domestic product in 2007, to 8% in 2019, primarily driven by a reduction in the cost of Armed Conflict.
