New Zealand ranked the second most peaceful country in the world

New Zealand has been ranked the second most peaceful country on Earth, according to this year's Global Peace Index.

New Zealand came second, with the researchers noting the Christchurch mosque attacks, but stating that our country had improved other scores and developed a “resilience” to cope with such disasters.

“New Zealand maintained or improved its scores in 22 out of 23 indicators, but deteriorated in the impact of terrorism because of the 15 March 2019 terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch, in which 51 people were killed,” the report said.

“Improvements in five other indicators across all three domains helped New Zealand maintain its rank as the second most peaceful country in the world.”
