Abstract

Political and regulatory risks, cause damage to countries and investors because of investment diminishing. When investments take place, those could increase services prices. Present work has as its objectives to characterize theoretically the problem, to study existent measures to face it, to know the available instruments to deal with it, and to draw some general conclusions on political and regulatory risks, and some specific conclusions referred to infrastructure concessions. The article is limited to the study of opportunistic behavior or governments.
