Estimated cost: R1001 – R5000
Field Of Study: Political Science
Department Name: Political Science


In an ever-increasing politically insecure world, international organisations are increasingly turning to political risk and the analysis thereof, which is mostly centred on problem solving theory. Problem solving theory can be complemented with decision theory, aiding rational decision-making under uncertainty. Political Risk Analysis is a practical and useful tool, and should play an integral role in a company, organisation or individual's strategic planning. The goal of this course is to offer a systematic introduction for assessing macro and micro challenges and opportunities, by conducting political risk analysis. This course will familiarise participants with the concepts and methods around political risk analysis. Participants will examine how political risk analysis can be used to identify and address risks and opportunities and to what extend political risk analysis can identify the stability of a host country.
