    Thank you for joining us today, Philippa!
  • What we see is that the distribution of peace is becoming increasingly uneven. There are 560m ppl living in these bottom 11 countries.
    It’s hard to imagine what it would be like living in an the world’s least peaceful countries, but to give you an idea people in these countries experience homicide rates that are the same level as those we were seeing in Europe over 500 years ago. And despite what popular media leads us to believe, over 85% of all global terrorist activity is targeted in these countries. What is alarming about this is that of the 560 million ppl living in these countries, 200 million already live below the poverty line and have very little options in terms of safety and security.
    Violence doesn’t just impact people living in conflict zones, it affects us all.
  • To be clear, we’re not saying that violence containment is a bad thing. In fact, it can be a very good thing. But it’s about getting the amount right. Overspending on violence containment restricts resources that could otherwise be allocated to more productive areas of the economy.
    Reducing our spending in violence frees up funds to invest in more productive areas for human development and wellbeing, such as education, healthcare and job creation. These areas encourage peace, which leads to high levels of wellbeing and peace – which in turn, allows for less violence containment spending and so on.
    But what do we mean when we say investing in institutions that will make us become more peaceful?
