PEACE is not just the absence of war but the presence of justice, of law, of order - in short: DEMOCRACY!

PEACE is a virtue and also a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice.

We are getting used to PEACE being the normal default state in Europe and the civilized world.

The Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP) is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit think tank dedicated to shifting the world’s focus to peace as a positive, achievable, and tangible measure of human well-being and progress.
