The Center for Emerging Market Enterprises and the Fletcher Political Risk Forum, in partnership with ExxonMobil, are pleased to announce the conference “Managing Political Risk: A Cross-Sector Conference on Political Risk Management and Mitigation,” which will be held at The Fletcher School, Tufts University on Friday, October 23, 2009.
About the Conference
Political risk mitigation techniques have become strategic components to enterprise risk management as uncertainty surrounding government regulation, expropriation, currency inconvertibility, and political violence becomes more common in today’s volatile economic environment. This conference will create a platform to host industry leaders to discuss the most salient political risks to investments in the emerging markets. An interdisciplinary approach resonates with The Fletcher School’s strength in bridging academic and professional expertise in business, law, finance, conflict resolution and natural resource policy.
The Center for Emerging Market Enterprises and the Fletcher Political Risk Forum at The Fletcher School, Tufts University will provide a forum for the dissemination of ideas and best practices on political risk mitigation for business professionals and graduate students in business and international affairs from the Boston area and beyond. The conference aims to foster a cross-sector discussion on political risk measurement and mitigation trends and techniques and address timely political risks facing international investors and businesses. A comprehensive conversation on political risk mitigation will feature moderated panels on energy and resource nationalism, political risk and business intelligence, investment and trade finance in conflict affected countries, and political risk insurance.
Attendees will include corporate risk managers, investment managers, financial and country analysts, underwriters, and academics, amongst others.
