Course Content

Risk is a central preoccupation in social, political and economic life. “Risk analysis” is correspondingly central to states, international organizations, non-governmental organizations and firms. It shapes their activities and their relations to the rest of the world. This course provides an entry point for understanding this ubiquitous phenomenon. It does so through a dual strategy which familiarizes participants with key theoretical concepts and developments in contemporary risk analysis and with the practice of political risk analysis. The course encourages theoretical informed reflection with reference to professional practice.
