Based on a new ranking of nations by their degree of peacefulness, Austria is the world’s fourth most peaceful country. New Zealand is placed first in the comparative study prepared by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), followed by Iceland and Japan. As in the past, Iraq is at the bottom of the list. Criteria such as political stability and respect for human rights were decisive. In 2008 Austria was ranked tenth.
