To find country reports and risk analysis, try one or both of these strategies:

  • Strategy 1: Do a News search [your topic], then filter by Publication Type: Country & Region Reports, then filter by Source. NOTE: Formerly Economist Intelligence Unit reports were available via Nexis Uni, but that is no longer the case. You will need to rely on other sources.
  • Strategy 2: Do a News search with a country name as a headline AND SWOT – Example headline(bermuda) AND SWOT. This is usually an extremely effective strategy.
