The IEP develops global and national indices, calculating the economic cost of violence, analysing country level risk and understanding positive peace. This year the organization welcomes three distinguished new members to its Advisory Council 

This year we are honoured to welcome three new esteemed members to IEP's International Advisory Council: 

Wim Kok Former Prime Minister, The Netherlands and Club de Madrid Member. He was also President of the Club de Madrid from 2009-2013.
Dr Kok was Prime Minister of the Netherlands from 1994-2002. From 1986 to 1994, he served as Minister of Finance and Deputy Prime Minister. 

Danilo Türk - Former President, Slovenia and Club de Madrid Member since December 2013.
Dr Turk was the third President of the Republic of Slovenia (2007-2012) and the official candidate of Slovenia for the post of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in 2016.

Youssef Mahmoud - Senior Advisor at the International Peace Institute
Dr Mahmoud is a Senior Advisor at the International Peace Institute (IPI). He was the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and Head of the UN Peacekeeping Mission in the Central African Republic and Chad before retiring from the United Nations in 2011. 

The Institute was recently ranked in the top 15 most impactful think tanks in the world on the Global Go To Think Tank Index. The research produced by the IEP is used extensively by governments, academic institutions, think tanks, non-governmental organisations and by intergovernmental institutions such as the OECD, The Commonwealth Secretariat, the World Bank and the United Nations. 

Founded in 2007 by IT entrepreneur and philanthropist Steve Killelea, also a long time friend and partner of the Club Madrid, (see full bio), the Institute for Economics and Peace is impacting traditional thinking on matters of security, defence, terrorism and development.
