This week, we are focusing on the role that government and governance can play in bringing about happiness. Perhaps you don't think government should have any role in this or perhaps you think it is the very purpose of a government and state to bring about opportunities for happiness. We are quiet capable of pointing out ways in which government causes unhappiness, but if that is the case then it should be capable of creating opportunities or environments in which happiness can flourish.
Consider the possible role of government in creating happiness for the people living within the state. What is the purpose of the state if not to help create the opportunity for happiness within the state? There are a number of indexes which capture happiness at the national level - please look through them:
Gross National Happiness Index:http://www.grossnationalhappiness.com/(Links to an external site.)

World Happiness Report:https://worldhappiness.report/ed/2019/(Links to an external site.)
World Happiness Index:https://countryeconomy.com/demography/world-happiness-index(Links to an external site.)
You can look through the different indexes and see the different indicators that are connected to these conceptualizations of the happiness.
There are also a few peace indexes out there that capture peacefulness, which could also be helpful in thinking about happiness. They are listed here:
Global Peace Index:http://visionofhumanity.org/indexes/global-peace-index/
Everyday Peace Indicators:https://everydaypeaceindicators.org/
OECD Better Life Index:http://www.oecdbetterlifeindex.org/#/11111111111
Human Development Index:http://hdr.undp.org/en/content/human-development-index-hdi
Please use this week to focus on your research project, getting caught up, and thinking about the role of government in creating happiness.
