Conclu-sions

Fuzzy Set Theory

… offers a possibility to use imprecise categories

… can handle complex relationships in relatively easy rule systems

… enables linguistic modelling, but with quantitative results

- Rule system (Inference):
- If people are poorand political situation is stable then susceptibility is medium to low.
- If people are poorand situation is instable then susceptibility is high.
- If people are richand situation is instable then susceptibility is medium to high.
- If people are richand situation is stable then susceptibility is very low.
