Czechia named 6th Most Peaceful Country

The Czech Republic was among 81 countries that improved their standing in the 10th annual Global Peace Index put out by the Institute for Economics and Peace. The Czech Republic rose to sixth place out of 183 countries. It had been at 10 out of 162 countries in 2015.

The Czech Republic scored well in all areas except security officers and police. The country was noted for its low homicide rate, lack of violent crime and lack of internal conflict. The difficult access to weapons, low military expenditure and good relations with neighboring countries were also positive factors.
