The Everyday Peace Indicators research methodology investigates alternative, bottom-up indicators of peace and how such bottom-up information can be meaningfully integrated into policy processes. The methodology employs an inductive, participatory approach to the generation of indicators in order to measure difficult-to-measure concepts such as peace. Taking its cue from studies in sustainable development, the research methodology asks community members to identify their own measures of peace. The EPI methodology is based on the premise that local communities are best placed to identify changes in their own circumstances, rather than relying on external ‘experts’ to identify indicators for them.
