Global Terrorism Index 2016 Launch: ASPI, 16 November 2016

By Jacinta Carroll

ASPI is pleased to partner with The Institute for Economics and Peace, for the Australian launch of the latest Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

This is the fourth edition of the GTI, which provides a comprehensive summary of key global trends and patterns in terrorism over the last 16 years, covering the period from the beginning of 2000 to the end of 2015. The study analyses the impact of terrorism for 163 countries, covering 99.7% of the world’s population.

Produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace, the GTI is based on data from the Global Terrorism Database, which is collected and collated by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). The Global Terrorism Database is considered to be the most comprehensive dataset on terrorist activity globally and has now codified over 150,000 terrorist incidents.
