In various countries around the world that is still characterized by war, conflict, and other threats to human security, the 2022 survey shows that world peace has decreased by 0.3% compared to 2021.

In the East African region, the war in Ethiopia and the wars of armed groups in DR Congo and Somalia make these countries the last in the world where there is peace.

The 2022 Global Peace Index was published last year and studied 163 countries where 99.7% of the world’s population lives.

Developers look at topics that include; security, internal and external conflicts, military deployments, confidence levels, domestic homicide rates, the risk of terrorist attacks, and international politics.

Of the countries examined, 90 increased the rate of peace they had and 70 had a return to peace, while the two countries did not change.

In DR Congo, things have gone backward, due to the war of armed groups in the east of the country. DRC is currently the sixth most peaceful country in the world.

Unexpectedly, Russia and Ukraine are among the most unsafe countries in the world, but some criticize that Russia is ahead of Ukraine as the most unsafe country and Ukraine is the one that is at war.

Of the 10 least peaceful countries in the world, five are in Africa.

Late wars

Somalia and DR Congo are now in the top 10 most insecure countries in Africa due to ‘delayed wars’ after more than 20 years with no hope of peace.

South Sudan, the world’s newest country, quickly made its way onto the list due to the ethnic-based but power-driven wars that have plagued the country since its inception in 2011.

DR Congo is the second most unsafe country in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the report.

Poverty and the number of armed groups that seem to control certain areas at will are some of the reasons, according to the report.

It also says that insecurity issues such as murder, rape, kidnapping, housebreaking, and extortion are common in DR Congo.

DR Congo, home to over 100 million people, is one of the most populous countries in the world and rich in natural resources.

It is a country four times the size of Rwanda and has a population of 376,000, most of whom live in the capital Reykjavik.

Settled by Viking settlers from Sweden centuries before Jesus Christ, they established a strong rule of law, according to historians.

Some of the reasons why Iceland is considered by some to be a ‘paradise’ on earth in terms of peace and security include;

The violence rate is low, the population is small, it is very close to the northern end of the world and there is a unique climate, the government works well, it accepts the rights of others and it lives well with the neighboring countries.

Did you know that? Over 1/3 of Iceland’s population owns a firearm, according to GunPolicy, a University of Sydney website that collects information on firearms worldwide. Yet between 2007 and 2015, there were no shooting deaths, according to the Flemish Peace Institute.
