According to the 2017 Global Peace Index Europe (Link To: remains the most peaceful region in the world, with eight of the ten most peaceful countries coming from this region. The Global Terrorism Index 2017 found that in Europe, two countries that had no impact of terrorism included Portugal and Slovenia. Not only that, but they are also surrounded by other countries with a low risk of terrorism, putting them in a safer position.
