On this page, you find a selection of online publications that my professional clients and my students use during my skills training sessions and Summer Schools. They focus on two critical aspects of country risk analysis: macro-economic risk indicators and political risk indicators.

These are also the online resources that I recommend to students of my Country Risk Analysis Summer School (Macro-Economic and Political Risk Drivers of Emerging Markets) at Maastricht University.

I am aware that this is a rather small selection of online publications on macro-economic risk indicators and political risk indicators. However, their content is highly relevant to conduct country risk research.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding these online publications on macro-economic risk indicators and political risk indicators, please contact me.
