Globally active companies – foremostly energy producers – are facing a new terrain of risk shaped by rapidly changing political conditions in the Middle East and a series of disastrous corporate scandals. After September 11th and the Enron collapse, the frontiers of political risk and corporate governance have changed dramatically. And the demands on risk management have multiplied in consequence.

The shift in the global paradigm means international companies are being stretched to manage both emerging political risks and compliance with stringent legislation and regulations on corporate governance. And there is a crucial link between both elements of risk. Companies now need to respond to political events – which can throw up opportunities as well as dangers – by ensuring business initiatives are not only viable politically, but are also legally safe and preserve reputation.
