Sri Lanka has become more peaceful and ranked better in this year's Global Peace Index that was released yesterday.

Sri Lanka ranks at 105th place in this year's Global Peace Index which ranked 162 nations according to their 'absence of violence'.

The GPI, the world's leading measure of national peacefulness, ranked Sri Lanka 110th in 2013 out of 162 countries.

The GPI is developed by Institute for Economics and Peace under the guidance of an international panel of independent experts with data collated and calculated by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

It is composed of 22 indicators, ranging from a nation's level of military expenditure to its relations with neighboring countries and the percentage of prison population.
