The Mexico Peace Index provides a comprehensive analysis of peacefulness in Mexico from 2003 to 2015, including a breakdown of the levels of peacefulness within Mexico’s 32 states; an in-depth analysis of disappearances within Mexico; an assessment of the cost of violence on the country’s economy; and an analysis of how higher levels of peace can be brought about.
This year’s report found that Mexico’s five consecutive years of peace gains slowed significantly in 2015, with the past year seeing just a 0.3% improvement, the smallest increment since 2011, according to new research from the Institute for Economics and Peace.
