Morocco Jumps to 78th in Global Peace Index, Second in Arab Region

Morocco rose several notches in Global Peace ranking, moving up six positions to 78th in the Global Peace Index released by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP).

Morocco scored 2.191 in the Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict category, 2.202 for Societal Safety and Security, and 1.665 in the Militarization category.

The kingdom ranked as the second most peaceful country in the broader Arab region, after Tunisia (74th globally), significantly outperforming neighboring Algeria (90th), Mauritania (95th) and Libya (128th).

Globally, Iceland ranks as the most peaceful country, followed by Austria, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland and Portugal.

Yemen came in as the least peaceful country in the world according to the 2024 GPI, ranking behind Sudan, South Sudan, Afghanistan and Ukraine.

Europe “remains the most peaceful region in the world and is home to seven of the ten most peaceful countries,” the report stated.

However, there has been a deterioration in “peacefulness” over the past year, marked by “the largest year-on-year deterioration recorded in militarization since the beginning of the GPI in 2008,” according to the report.

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region continues “to exhibit the lowest levels of peace and stability”, the report asserted. “It is home to four of the ten least peaceful countries in the world, including the two least peaceful, Sudan and Yemen.”

While global peace and stability deteriorated in 97 countries despite setbacks, it improved in 65 others.

The report highlighted ongoing efforts to promote stability and security worldwide.

In developing the Index each year, the IEP assesses the state of peace in 163 countries and territories around the world, representing approximately 100% of the world’s population. The Index evaluates peace based on more than 20 factors, including social security, ongoing conflict and militarization.
