In May 2022, IEP was contacted regarding concerns arising from Myanmar’s listing in the 2022 Global Terrorism Index.
We immediately redacted Myanmar from the 2022 Global Terrorism Index, carefully considering all concerns received and acknowledging the sensitive nature of the situation.
Moving forward, we are taking a number of actions which include a clearer definition of terrorism, and additional expert reviews of research products prior to release.
Our focus remains on using high quality data driven research to show that peace is a positive, tangible and achievable measure of human well-being and development.
