International Political Risk Management: Looking to the Future is the third in a series of volumes based on the MIGA-Georgetown University Symposium in International Political Risk Management. Like its predecessors, this volume offers expert assessments of needs, trends, and challenges in the international political risk insurance industry. These assessments come from a dozen senior practitioners from the investor, financial, insurance, broker, and analytical communities. The volume leads off by examining the lessons that can be learned from recent investment losses, insurance claims, and arbitrations. It then turns to consider what the future may hold for coverage of project finance projects in emerging markets as well as recent public-private collaboration trends in the issuance of political risk insurance. It concludes by reconsidering both old and new political risk insurance products and innovations that seek to expand the tools that international investors can utilize to mitigate political risk abroad. A current in-depth analysis from the front lines of international political risk management, this book will be a valuable guide to those who are considering private sector investments and privatizations in the developing world, whether as equity sponsors, lenders, or insurers. It should also be of interest to independent analysts and scholars working in the field of political risk management
