Two years into the deepest global financial crisis in the post-war era, the world economy is still experiencing uneven economic recovery and financial weakness. Financial market conditions are signaling improved investor confidence and more appetite for cross-border investments. As part of its mandate to encourage investment to developing countries, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) seeks to foster more understanding of the role of political risk, and instruments to mitigate it. The objective for this report is to examine (i) overall investment trends and perceptions of political risk especially for what regards foreign direct investment (FDI) to emerging markets; (ii) investments and risks specifically in Conflict-Affected and Fragile States (iii) the role political risk insurance (PRI) is playing today and its likely role in the future.
