The security offered by a foreign nation determines how appealing it is.
One of the best reasons to travel to a foreign country, above and beyond its magnificent architecture or intriguing cultures, is the security it ensures.
Unfortunately, stereotypes have damaged the image of Africa so severely that it is almost unsalvageable. Africa has its challenges, just like everywhere else in the world, but for some reason, these challenges have given the continent a bad reputation and largely discouraged foreigners from traveling there to experience all the wonders the motherland has to offer.
However, a thorough examination of regional security has shown that Africa is generally peaceful, and some of its nations actually rank among the most peaceful in the world.
While some African countries scored highly for hostility, many African countries were found to be peaceful, according to a study from the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) in Sydney.
The Global Peace Index, a metric, was employed in the study (GPI). 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from reputable sources are used in the GPI. It gauges the level of societal safety and security, the severity of ongoing domestic and international conflict, and the level of militarization in three different areas.
The GPI is also affected by things like increased military spending, cutting-edge technological applications in the conflict, how it affects food prices, and international shipping routes.
The conflict between Russia and Ukraine, according to the report, contributed significantly to a 0.3% decline in the average level of world peace. Conflicts in Burkina Faso and Guinea, however, also played a role in this decline.
In addition, the report reveals that South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa saw the biggest advancements. Additionally, Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, and Algeria saw the biggest increases in their global peace index.
A swift response to rebel activities in East Africa, the end of the Ethiopia-Tigray War, and the forfeiture of terrorist ties in West Africa all happened this year alone.
Africa still has a long way to go, but some areas—areas that fall into the “green” and “yellow” zones—are very peaceful. A high level of peace can be found in the green zone, a medium level of peace can be found in the yellow zone, a low level of peace can be found in the orange zone, and a very low level of peace can be found in the red zone.
The ten most tranquil nations in Africa in 2022 are listed below. Some of the nations on this list were also on the one from the previous year. the list that follows
