In this study, we try to discover the variables susceptible to affect the peace. To arrive there, we made resort to the analysis in cross-sectional. We find that the institutional variables are auspicious to the peace, especially the political stability. The macroeconomic variables are, on the whole, of the positive and statistically meaningful determinants to the peace, in spite of the fact that some are not robust. The war remains damaging to the peace and this in a robust manner. It is more or less the same report for the inequalities. The effects of the size of nation, the religion and the diversity are not as clear. The human capital seems favorable.
