General policy risks are a group of risks that reflect the internal impact on public administration through common policy factors.
Such as nationalization of property, internal hostilities, change the ruling political party, change directions of development or political course and other factors.
These risks affect both the entire internal structure of the elements of the system under study and the associated risks and factors of their occurrence.
General policy risks are divided into:
- the risk of a change in the ruling political party;
- risk of changing priority areas of development;
- risk of internal hostilities;
- risk of private areas of domestic policy (financial, social administrative, etc.);
- risk of nationalization;
- risk of internal national security;
- the risk of a complete change of policy;
- transfer risk.
Indicators of identification of this risk group are:
- the number of active parties and political blocs, their structural ratio;
- private indicators of the development of certain political areas (financial, administrative, social, etc.);
- the pace of development and updating of the domestic legislative framework;
- the number of political offences committed;
- dynamics of infrastructure development;
- many other general political indicators.
Ways to evaluate general policy risks:
- monitoring the state and dynamics of development of political parties, analysis from the numerical ratio in the structure of government;
- monitoring enforcement and updating of the existing regulatory framework;
- assessment of the number of political offences committed;
- comparative analysis of the development of certain political areas (financial, administrative, social, etc.);
- other modern means of monitoring general political indicators.
Methods of managing general policy risks:
- increasing the participation of the population in the political life of the country, including the younger generation;
- conducting discussions and open (closed) voting through personal Internet rooms;
- mainstreaming private areas of domestic policy;
- approval of long-term development programmes for political ideology-independent governing parties;
- development of measures to reduce the level of political conflicts;
- prevention of political offences;
- finding and implementing modern methods of planning, forecasting and monitoring;
- creation of appropriate reserve funds, etc.
