Terrorism & Political Violence Risk Map 2021

We are pleased to announce that our partner, Aon, has launched its annual Terrorism & Political Violence Risk Map.


This is the fourteenth year that the team at Dragonfly (formerly Risk Advisory’s Intelligence & Analysis practice) has partnered with Aon to produce the Terrorism & Political Violence Risk Map by providing source data and expert analysis.

The country risk ratings draw heavily on proprietary data and represent the joint assessments of Dragonfly and Aon. The map and its supporting analysis aims to provide a global overview of exposure to insurable political violence risks for businesses and their supply chains in 2021.

The coronavirus crisis both suppressed and aggravated terrorism and political violence risks in 2020. We saw marked variances in the incidence of violent risks and conflicts in nearly every region. A rising tide of risk seems likely by 2022 as mass vaccinations and an easing of restrictions converge with the accumulated economic and political fallout of the pandemic.
