Political Risk Assessment
Middle East and North Africa’s (MENA) political and security landscape is shifting, hence collecting intelligence, information and data is not enough. Relying on outdated ways of understanding the region can result in less than optimum outcomes. At i-Strategic we understand that social, political and security signs have preceded all political, security events and crisis that transpired in MENA since 2011, and more acutely in 2014 onward. Capturing and pinpointing crucial political, security and socio-economic signs require culturally sensitive eyes, and regional intelligence trained to translate signs into actionable insight, and insight to opportunity. Our focus is primarily on political risk assessment, foreign policy, security, counter-terrorism, investment policies and business intelligence. We contend that having a proactive strategy is indispensable for today’s international corporations, business ventures, government and investment missions in the MENA region.
Operational Political Risk Assessments, also known as Macro Risk Assessments, provide a framework in which various risk criteria are weighted to reflect the impact on investment and business profitability. i-Strategic focuses exclusively on political risk assessment in the Middle East and North African countries. Modeling our operational political risk assessment considers 12 risk criteria within 3 categories, political, economic and social, with the political category weighted at a ratio of 3:1:1.
