Sometimes you might need to find some background information about a country as part of an assignment.  Some of our databases contain useful Country reports:

ProQuest Central - contains lots of useful information:

  • To find EIU country reports enter the following into the search bar: country report: country name e.g. country report: United Kingdom. EIU reports contain the political and economic trends of the country.
  • To find ​country risk reports published by Business Monitor International type the country name followed by country risk report e.g. United Kingdom country risk report - you might have to scroll through the results to find the latest report. The reports contain economic and political SWOT analysis and a 10 year risk forecast.

Business Source Premier contains country reports - to find them type the county you are interested in into the search bar and select country report from the publication type menu and then click on search:
