Libya ranked 151 on Global Peace Index

Libya was ranked 14 on the Arab world and 151 globally on the Global Peace Index of 2022.

The Institute for Peace and Global Economy indicated that Libya had witnessed a remarkable improvement in the security level, while the volume of military spending amounted to 10.5% of the gross domestic product.

It said that Libya recorded the highest increase in stability in the region and the highest improvement in the world, as its score improved by 5.6% in the Global Peace Index for the year 2022, despite remaining one of the least peaceful countries in the world.

The institute added that Libya had witnessed a deterioration in only one indicator, which is the funding of UN peacekeeping operations, while it recorded the highest improvement in peace and security, violent demonstrations, refugees and internally displaced persons, as well as perceptions of criminality.

It added that Libya still faces many challenges to peace, yet the field of safety and security improved by 8.3%, driven by a decline in violence and indicators of refugees and internally displaced persons, at a time when the number of deaths of victims of violence decreased by 21%.

The institute also referred to the decrease in deaths due to the ceasefire agreement between the former Government of National Accord and the forces of Khalifa Haftar in October 2020, saying that even with this decrease in deaths, the indicator of the intensity of the internal conflict remains high.
