The article talks about the changes in the methodology in rating political risks. The four components of the structural ratings are characteristics of polity, characteristics of state, scope of state and policy continuity. The four components of the short-term ratings are policy-making process, social stability, security/external environment and policy continuity. It is inferred that the new ratings scores are not directly comparable with the past scores due to the changes.
