Welcome to The Country Risk Blog ! This blog is the result of my many years of experience as a country risk analyst.

My name is dr Leonhardt van Efferink and I am author of the The Country Risk Blog. In fact, I am also co-author of the book Country Risk Analysis. Professors Clemens Kool and Tom van Veen are the other co-authors. Based on my research and teaching experience, I explain here how you can improve your analytical skills.

My focus is on on political and economic drivers, and the economic resilience of countries.
