The Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice at Queen’s University Belfast would like to invite you to the launch of the Global Terrorism Index, a report compiled by the Institute for Economics and Peace.

The event will be introduced by Professor Richard English, the Director of the Mitchell Institute at Queen’s University Belfast. The keynote speaker, Serge Stroobants, Director of Europe & MENA regions at the Institute for Economics and Peace, will provide a detailed overview of the Global Terrorism Index report and on the state of terrorism around the world.

There will be additional discussion around Ukraine from Professor Louise Mallinder (Legacy Theme Lead at the Mitchell Institute). The event and Q&A will then be hosted/facilitated by Dr Andrew Thomson from Queen’s University Belfast.

The Global Terrorism Index report that will be launched can be found here.

Produced by the Institute of Economics and Peace (IEP), the Global Terrorism Index (GTI) is a comprehensive study analysing the impact of terrorism for 163 countries covering 99.7 per cent of the world’s population.

Given the significant resources committed to counter terrorism by governments across the world, it is important to analyse and aggregate the available data to better understand its various properties. One of the key aims of the GTI is to examine these trends. It also aims to help inform a positive, practical debate about the future of terrorism and the required policy responses.
