We are thrilled to announce the launch of ‘Economists on Peace’, an editorial collaboration between the Institute for Economics and Peace and Economists for Peace and Security.
Economists on Peace presents some of the latest thinking on pressing issues relevant to the policy, practice and theory of economics and development in conflict and crisis-affected contexts from leading academics and experts in economics, peace and security. Economists on Peace aims to stimulate global discussion and shared learning on economic aspects of peace and conflict leading to appropriate action for peace, security and the world economy.

We are delighted that this blog, originally hosted by the US Institute of Peace (USPI) and later by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), will now be available here at visionofhumanity.org.
Economists for Peace and Security (EPS) is an international network of economists, set up to establish economics of peace and security as a fundamental part of the academic discipline of economics. EPS has paved the way to the fulfilment of this aim by setting up academic chairs, a peer-reviewed academic journal and by promoting economic analysis on conflict and security. Our economists provide expertise for social scientists, citizens, journalists and policy-makers worldwide.
The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) is the world’s leading think tank dedicated to developing metrics to analyse peace and to quantify its economic value. It does this by developing global and national indices, calculating the economic cost of violence, analysing country level risk and understanding positive peace.
