Despite its reputation as an intangible public good, various research institutions have already been measuring peace for decades. Over the years, they have improved the methodology and gained respect of the academics and policymakers. Yet we know surprisingly little on how peace metrics are used in practice. How relevant are they to governments, aid agencies, international organisations and civil society organisations? The proposed event aims at analysing the relevance of different ways to measure peace from the perspective of different stakeholders. With a comparative approach, it seeks to identify the ways on how to make best use of available measurements.
