From Raconteur: “Geopolitical and societal risks topped the list of concerns…with 79.4% citing state collapse or crisis, interstate conflict and failure of national governance as causing the greatest concern over the next 18 months. With its close relevance to geopolitical risk, 52% were concerned about the widespread ramifications arising from large-scale involuntary migration. The findings give some indication of how…business can be disrupted by geopolitical events at home or abroad, clearly a primary concern for business leaders.”
