How Can Students Better Understand the Impact of Violence and Peace?

The Institute for Economics and Peace has updated the free teaching modules, the Building Blocks of Peace, with peace data from the 2012 from the 2012 Global Peace Index. You can download these resources for use in your classroom here:
Please also take a few minutes to complete a short survey on peace education that will help us further develop our materials:
The Institue for Economics and Peace (IEP) has developed free education resources that allow students to explore the social and economic impact of violence and peace in their communities and the world. IEP is a non-profit research institute dedicated to better understanding the social, economic, and political factors that drive peacefulness. We produce the Global Peace Index and the United States Peace Index, which measure peacefulness at national and regional levels and provide rich data, resources, and visualizations for teaching, including interactive maps.
If you are not familiar with the Building Blocks of Peace lesson plans, please visit to download these free modules that cover:
  • An Understanding of Peace explores the factors influencing a country's peacefulness and why peace is more than simply the absence of war
  • Peace and Sustainability explains the impact of peace on global sustainability through a focus on water access and management
  • Education and Peace investigates how education is important in supporting a country's peacefulness
  • Peace and Economics evaluates the benefits of peace to the economy and business through an exploration of tourism retail industries
