Introduction

On this page, you find a selection of online publications that my professional clients use during my skills training courses. These publications focus on two critical aspects of country risk analysis: macro-economic risk drivers and political risk drivers.

I also recommend these publications to students of my Country Risk Analysis skills training at Maastricht University and my Country Risk Analysis course at Maastricht Summer School.

I am aware that this is a rather small selection of online publications on macro-economic risk drivers and political risk drivers. However, their content is highly relevant when you want start with doing country risk analysis.

These links were all up-to-date in January 2021. If you have questions or suggestions regarding online publications on macro-economic risk drivers and political risk drivers, please contact me.
