Abstract


The article presents a comparative analysis of country risks, which are oriented on European integration by criteria of credibility, liquidity, and political stability. The author analyzes the main approaches and methods for risks determination and discusses the current state of research for indicators of liquidity, credibility, and political stability of the chosen states. We determined some peculiarities of risk in Ukraine, Turkey, Moldova, and Georgia and proved the possibility of countries convergence due to improvement of institutional environment and adequate evaluation of risks.


Keywords
