Likelihood of Violent Demonstrations is one of the 23 indicators of peace measured by the Global Peace Index. It is an 'internal' indicator of peace, meaning it measures peace within a country.
Likelihood of Violent Demonstrations is a qualitative assessment of the probability of violent demonstrations in a country in the near future.
Likelihood of Violent Demonstrations is scored on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the least and 5 the most. It is assessed using the criteria of the question “Are violent demonstrations or violent civil/labour unrest likely to pose a threat to property or the conduct of business over the next two years?”
In countries that score 1, violent demonstrations are strongly unlikely to pose a threat to property or business.
In countries that score 5, violent demonstrations are strongly likely to pose a threat to property or business.
Likelihood of Violent Demonstrations is a qualitative assessment from the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Country Analysis team.
The Global Peace Index is comprised of 23 indicators that measure the existence or absence of violence or the fear of violence. These include:
