ABSTRACT
The article presents a global political outlook for 2010. Political risks are expected to remain high despite the anticipation of an improved global economy due to a slow recovery in employment. International issues like the Afghanistan war, political turmoil in Pakistan and Iran's nuclear agenda will continue to prevail. An overview of political events and issues is also presented, such as the foreign policy challenges facing U.S. President Barack Obama and the election of a successor to Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
