Country Risk Analysis (Political Instability): Domestic Politics, Foreign Policy Strategy and Geopolitical Scenario Planning [Summer School]

This description applies to an earlier year. For links to my 2019 Summer School courses at Maastricht University, please have a look at this overview.

Country Risk Analysis (Political Instability): Domestic Politics, Foreign Policy Strategy and Geopolitical Scenario PlanningThe developments in Egypt over the past five years, the long civil war in Colombia and the current conflict in the Ukraine underline the continued importance of political risk analysis for banks and companies that do business in Emerging Markets. The “Country Risk Analysis (Political Instability)” Summer School helps you better understand what political risk is and how it can affect the economic growth potential of Emerging Markets. The opening lectures teach you different ways to conceptualize political risk and which domestic and international factors are important in this regard. Further lectures offer you insights into how the foreign policy strategy of a country can be linked to geopolitical scenarios, and how you can benefit from this approach. You also participate in a geopolitical scenario planning workshop, in which you can apply your newly acquired skills. The results of the workshop can be used for the report that you write with your group and that analyses a country of your choice. During the course, you give two talks about the political situation in that country.
