The Global Terrorism Index, now in its seventh iteration, is a landmark synopsis of terrorism trends around the world. Issued by the Australia-based Institute for Economics and Peace in Sydney, the Index looks back at nearly a half-century of violent extremist acts and groups, with a focus on 2014, coinciding with the rise of Islamic State.
The Professional Development Institute’s Security, Economics and Technology (S.E.T.) Program is pleased to offer an overview of the 2019 Index on December 11, 2019.
Mr. Serge Stroobants, Director of Operations for Europe & MENA, Institute for Economics and Peace will outline the report’s findings and speak to future trends and changes in the international terrorism landscape.
This is a unique opportunity to gain insights from one of the foremost surveys on terrorism.
Here is a snapshot from the 2019 index:
- The total number of deaths from terrorism declined for the fourth consecutive year in 2018
- Despite the fall in total deaths, the number of countries affected by terrorism remains high
- The global economic impact of terrorism in 2018 amounted to $33 billion
