Equatorial Guinea Ranks 62nd on Global Peace Index

Equatorial Guinea was ranked 62 out of 163 countries on the Global Peace Index. Other countries close in ranking include Argentina, the United Arab Emirates, South Korea, and Ecuador.

At 62nd, Equatorial Guinea was ranked far ahead of many larger, developed nations, including Brazil (105), China (120), Mexico (140), India (141), and the United States (103).

Equatorial Guinea was measured based on external and internal conflicts, relations with neighboring countries, and political stability, among many other factors.

The Index measures the state of peace using qualitative and quantitative date and is released annually by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP).

The IEP is an international think tank focused on the relationship between economics, business, and peace.
