The Global Peace and Justice domain measures each country’s global citizenship commitment in three major areas: the extent to which countries have signed and ratified international conventions and agreements related to disarmament and global justice; the level of countries’ monitoring and reporting to the United Nations; and the extent to which countries have implemented the principles of the conventions. In the absence of sufficient international agreements and commitments, we draw upon existing best practice standards set forth by NGOs, think tanks, and other international institutions. Implementation is generally measured by current conditions in the country and therefore looks more at results of countries’ actions regarding implementation rather than the actual process of implementation. The six indicators to measure implementation for the Global Peace and Justice domain are: International and Domestic Conflict; Militarization; Displacement; Domestic Peace and Security; Justice and Rule of Law; and Transnational Crime and Nuclear Weapons. There is also an additional indicator to account for current events in global peace and justice.
