Businesses operating globally need to identify, assess, and forecast political risks when entering into or expanding within international markets.
Political risk assessment is conducted by assessing the conditions of a country or region, studying its institutions, business culture, and political developments. For companies operating in multiple countries, local political conditions can determine whether their investment is a success or a failure.
You are required to prepare a report, outlining the general categories of political risk faced by managers.
Using examples from various media sources, your report should identify, illustrate, and analyze how these risks can affect a country’s business environment.
