Abstract

The interface of political science and tourism is rapidly developing. Much has been published concerning the obvious impact of coups and terrorism on the tourist traffic but little on how political science can aid decisionmakers in assessing the multitude of less spectacular political activities affecting investments abroad. The area of political risk analysis is critically examined, offering perspectives on methodological problems associated with predicting political risk, the role played by multinationals in creating risk, and the role of political risk analysis within the context of the changing nature of relationships between multinationals and less developed countries.
