The focus of the course is on the strategic management of socio-political risk. It begins with topics concerning assessing the location, severity, and causes of socio-political risk in the project's stakeholder network. Then principles for mitigating risk are reviewed. They include strategies for changing the network structure and for devising more appropriate stakeholder relations strategies. Finally, specific community initiatives and programs are discussed to show how they meet multiple risk reduction criteria simultaneously, such as those advocated in corporate social responsibility and sustainability charters and guidelines.
