It is the most important risk that international businesses may face abroad. Since international businesses do not operate in only one country, they may be exposed to varying degrees of political risk through the approaches of various governments. The presence of political risks stands as the biggest obstacle to foreign investments of enterprises. One of the arguments used for the management and minimization of political risks is political risk insurance.
