Safest countries in Africa
The Global Peace Index ranks the world’s safest countries. The Institute for Economics and Peace, which is “an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to moving the world’s focus to peace as a positive, feasible, and quantifiable measure of human wellbeing and progress,” publishes this study every year. The study looks at countries to see which are the safest, as well as which are the most dangerous.
The study includes information on 163 countries. There are 23 distinct indications used to assess whether a country is safe or harmful. These factors are categorized as follows: Militarization, ongoing international conflict, and societal safety and security. The number of internal and foreign violent conflicts, the level of distrust, political instability, the potential for terrorist actions, the number of homicides, and military spending as a percentage of GDP were all considered to construct this report.
In Africa, the three safest countries are Mauritius, Ghana, and Botswana, according to the Global Peace Index.
We’ve compiled a list of the safest African countries. This article will tell you which African countries are the safest, based on actual statistics.
