Country Risk Assessment: A Behavioral Perspective
How to mitigate Country Risks when going abroad?


When deciding to expand activities overseas SME’s often fall short in their appropriate Country risk assessment, which are either incomplete, biased or both.

That can occasionally result in unnecessary international hazards faced by companies and therefore potentially impact on value creation to its stakeholders.

In this Keynote session, Dr. Henk Van der Berg will  discuss the question “In what way can decision makers be supported in executing country risk assessment?” suggesting two potential solutions. The first solution explores the forecasting  of country risks while preventing biased judgment from occurring, while the second solution views country risks not as calculable risks but as uncertainty and, as such, deviates from traditional methods of forecasting.

On this page you can find all information about the programme and how to register. 

We look forward to seeing you on 28 March 2018.
