Terrorism & Political Violence Risk Map 2020

This is the thirteenth year Risk Advisory has partnered with Aon to produce the Terrorism & Political Violence Risk Map by providing source data and expert analysis.

<strong>Terrorism & Political Violence Risk Map 2020</strong>

The country risk ratings draw heavily on proprietary data and represent the joint assessments of Risk Advisory and Aon. The map and its supporting analysis aims to provide a global overview of exposure to insurable political violence risks for businesses and their supply chains in 2020.

The Covid-19 pandemic is a turning point and will have widespread geopolitical impact. The socio-economic implications of Covid-19 are likely to be significant, creating complex security challenges long-term. Particularly hard-hit countries – such as those with a significant footprint in the tourism and retail sector, or where there are proportionally more deaths from the pandemic – have greater potential for civil unrest and government-focused protest regarding response and lockdown measures. Economic grievances may also incubate nationalist extremism or encourage the use of political violence at a sub-state or state level. Riots, civil unrest and extreme right-wing terrorism punctuated 2019 and this trend looks set to continue in 2020.
