Political Risk

Over about 45-60 minutes, Dr Carlo Gallo will define 'political risk analysis' and explain why businesses need it. His talk will also:

  • Identify the main players supplying this type of analysis, and explain how they go about producing it
  • Discuss how dominant consulting approaches relate to the academic study of relevant social phenomena
  • Discuss other types of 'business intelligence,' such as due diligence research
  • Highlight the skills and educational experiences that employers tend to look for when seeking to hire political risk analysts

After the talk, there will be at least 30 minutes for questions from the audience.

Dr. Gallo has 15 years of experience helping businesses in virtually any industry understand political, integrity and security risks around the world. In 2013 he founded his company Enquirisk, originally in London - now in California. Late in 2020, he has also founded Enquirintel Inc., to provide clients with more narrowly focused due diligence research. From late 2005 till spring 2012, Dr Gallo was the lead Russia analyst at international specialist consultancy Control Risks. Previously, he had obtained a highly commended PhD in Russian politics from the London School of Economics (LSE). He has held lecturing and research positions at leading UK universities and is a ACAMS Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist.
