Micro Risk

A type of political risk that refers to political actions in a host country that can adversely affect selected foreign operations. Micro risk can come about from events that may or may not be in the reigning government's control.


For example, diplomatic tension with Country A has caused the citizens of Country B to vandalize all Country A based companies situated in Country B. In this example, only operations from Country A were faced with adverse situations. Operations from other countries were not affected.
