2 min read

Mauritius is the most peaceful country in Africa and the twenty fourth (24th) most peaceful country in the world, according to the 2019 edition of the Global Peace Index (GPI).

Top 20 Most Peaceful Countries in Africa 2019

The report, released on Wednesday, “measures the state of peace using three thematic domains: the level of Societal Safety and Security; the extent of Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict; and the degree of Militarisation.

“The GPI covers 99.7 per cent of the world’s population, using 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources.”

Results in sub-Saharan Africa were mixed last year across both indicators and countries. Twenty-seven of the region’s 44 countries deteriorated in peacefulness, leading to a weakening of all three domains of the GPI, while 12 of the region’s 23 indicators improved and eight deteriorated.

The region’s five largest country improvements were recorded in Rwanda, The Gambia, Djibouti, Eswatini and Somalia.

According to the 2019 Global Peace Index, produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), these are the most peaceful countries in Africa 2019.
