Event: Managing Political Risk

Managing political risk and uncertainty from a historical perspective

Monday 27 February 2017, 10.00 – 17.00

This workshop is hosted by

  • Economy, Society and History cluster, Centre for Business in Society, Coventry University,
  • School of Strategy and Leadership, Coventry University,
  • In conjunction with the British Academy of Management Special Interest Groups for Strategy and Management and Business History.

In a climate of increased political volatility, this workshop will examine organisational responses to political risk and uncertainty over time. It will explore the development of theoretical and methodological approaches to analysing non-market strategy and the management of political risk, specifically focusing on how history has been used. The workshop aims to generate discussion around the contribution to be made by history to the scholarship in this field.
