The Peace Age

Have we achieved more peace in our time?
Experts from Norway's Peace Research Institute Oslo examined statistics from 'all possible' wars, the countries involved, and how many people were killed.

Research director Håvard Mokleiv Nygård suggested the Korean War in the early 1950s may have been a 'breaking point' signalling a change in the number of people killed in battle.

'The wars after the Korean War (1950–1953) have killed a quarter as many people as the wars before the Korean War,' he said.

'The change after this breaking point is an indication that the world has become a more peaceful place,' adding Nygård, whose researchers work alongside statisticians at the University of Oslo.
That would be good...
