    The aim of this research was to describe and explain the use of techniques of political risk
    assessment (PRA) in Jordanian international firms.

    The research identified the extensive use of qualitative PRA techniques due to their
    flexibility, simplicity and low cost. Quantitative techniques, on the other hand, were used by
    only a minority of respondents.

    In any event, Jordanian international firms believe that official data is subject to censorship
    and is therefore not reliable. This undermines the efficiency of using highly sophisticated
    quantitative techniques.
