While FIFA runs the 2014 Soccer World Cup, we here at the Institute for Economics and Peace thought it would be a good idea to run the first ever Peace World Cup.
Before each match is played on the soccer field, our data scientists will whip up a comparison of levels of peacefulness in competing nations.
We’ll be sure to include interesting tid-bits and fast facts that will give you a little something to think about while you watch 22 players sweat it out on the field.
To add to the excitement we’re going to release the 2014 Global Peace Index 6 days into the tournament – which means all the countries playing will have their peace ranks updated.
Vision of Humanity is an initiative of the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP). IEP have offices in New York and Sydney. For more specific inquiries related to the peace indexes and research, please contact IEP directly.
