Please see the website for the Global Peace Index as you will find much more detail and rankings of countries (including Turkey). I am not involved with the index just sharing it.

In the video I did not see Turkey in the index while arm conflict is ongoing between the Kurd guerrillas and the Turkish army. During the last months, hundreds of soldiers and guerrillas have been killed in the mountains of Kurdistan and near cities. I would like to ask those who prepared this report whether they did not consider this conflict a real unrest or they work upon specific policies to hide these realities since Kurds have been ignored from all maps of policies in the Middle East. Please respond this question.
