Political Risk and its Consequences

Register

Government is inherently political and with politics comes disagreement, uncertainty, and emotion. However, the nature of our politics has changed in recent years and, with it, the level of risk for government. Political conflict today is characterized by decreasing trust in institutions and deteriorating norms of governance. In this session, we will explore how this risk threatens good public finance and what can be done about it.
