Methodological Approaches to the Phenomenon of Political Risk

Yu. A. Zulyar

The subject of the article is the study of the causes of political risks, the explanation of this phenomenon and some directions, methods and methods of their identification. Political risk is an integral element of any prognosis, but on the other hand, the definition and calculation of the probability of political risk begins after the political prognosis. Identifying potential and likely political risks involves a number of difficulties, but their ability to prevent getting into trouble and avoid possible drastic consequences or to minimize losses, if any occur, more than justifies efforts and financial costs.
