Based on Australian think tank Institute for Economics & Peace rankings, India has slipped by 5 places to rank 141st among 163 countries in recently released Global Peace Index (GPI) 2019.  The think tank ranks countries based on the level of societal safety and security, the extent of ongoing domestic and international conflict, and the degree of militarization.

Iceland remained at the top position while Afghanistan is ranked the most violent country in the world according to GPI 2019. Here important point to note is, Iceland remained top as world's peaceful country from the year 2008.  The US ranked 128th in the list. This year is the first year that has seen Iraq rise to the 5th least peaceful country, a position which was previously a lot lower.
