VeCo co-hosts the launch of the Global Terrorism Index 2017

Vesalius College is pleased to invite you to the official launch of the Global Terrorism index 2017 (GTI), hosted by VeCo in cooperation with leading institutes and think tanks such as the Institute for Economics and Peace, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Europe, the Global Governance Institute and the Atlantic Treaty Association. 

About the Global Terrorism Index

The GTI provides a comprehensive summary of the key global trends and patterns in terrorism since 2000. It produces a composite score in order to provide an ordinal ranking of countries on the impact of terrorism. It is an attempt to systematically rank the nations of the world according to the terrorist activity. The index combines a number of factors associated with terrorist attacks to build an explicit picture of the impact of terrorism, illustrating trends, and providing a data series for analysis by researchers and policymakers.
