Protect your interests from political instability worldwide

Political Risk Intelligence provides rich, data-driven information about the dynamics of active and emerging political conflicts worldwide and any resulting security risks for both private and public sector organisations.

Political Risk Intelligence

Political Risk Intelligence data sharpens and informs decision-making whether you are entering new markets, monitoring operations or evaluating investments.

This product is the result of an innovative analysis of political conflicts and their dynamics, using a consistent, data-driven and research-based methodology. It can help you identify, measure and visualise the development of political risks over time and location.

Political Risk Intelligence will enable you to evaluate the specific risks that active and emerging conflicts may pose to your interests in employee welfare, production and logistics.

Vulnerability in supply chains

To ensure production while satisfying regulatory compliance, it is important to pay attention to both first and second tier suppliers of components and raw materials. A loss of production at any point in the supply chain is often felt throughout the system. For large organisations, the supplier network can be spread across thousands of locations, with far-reaching ripple effects.

From single location evaluation to global supply chain resilience testing, Political Risk Intelligence provides early and timely information about any political risks and tensions that can impact your operations. We can help you understand the geopolitical vulnerabilities and conflict contexts that could affect your business, allowing you to develop effective mitigation strategies.

How clear is your view of global political risk and potential ramifications to your supply chain?

Understand physical security risks

Political Risk Intelligence can be used to visualise physical security (excluding crime) at a regional level. Conflicts may range from strikes and trade embargos, to kidnap, terrorism and militia-led control. Risk scores are based on a thorough monthly assessment of sub-national dynamics of all ongoing (violent and non-violent) political conflicts in a given region in the past twelve months. It takes into account both the risk of recurring conflicts as well as the likelihood of spillover from neighbouring regions and countries.

Are you aware of your blind spots in mitigating physical security risks?

In an uncertain world, be SURE

Whilst attacks on specific days cannot be predicted or the escalation of peaceful protests into violent ones, you can raise your awareness and preparedness in advance of conflict. Political Risk Intelligence will deliver insight into which parts of a given country are vulnerable to political violence and give reassurance in those with low security profiles.

The SUb-national REsilience (SURE) Index combines information on a country’s economic, political and demographic development in combination with the specific conflict experienced by individual subnational regions.

The resilience index value calculated for each region is well-suited for strategic market planning, as well as the evaluation of manufacturing facilities, suppliers and supply chain networks.

SURE was developed with research originating from the Institute of Political Science at the University of Heidelberg, Germany.
