Visualizing global patterns of terrorism and peace

For this Data for a Cause challenge we are working with Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP).

The Institute for Economics and Peace is the world’s leading think tank dedicated to developing metrics to analyze peace and to quantify its economic value. It does this by developing global and national indices, calculating the economic cost of violence, analyzing country level risk and understanding positive peace.
