Game Theory in International Relations at 50

IBEI, May 22, 2009

Game theory is an instrument that serves to analyse relationships characterised by inter-dependence. It was first introduced to the study of inter-dependence in international relations by the seminal contributions of Thomas Schelling and Morton Kaplan exactly 50 years ago. Since that moment, the literature (as well as an “anti-literature”) has continued to expand exponentially, offering one of the most fascinating areas of scholarship in politically and humanly vital issues. This one-day workshop organized by the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals aims at bringing together a group of internationally renowned experts in these fields in order to work towards an assessment of this influential line of research. More specifically, the goal is not to polarize the debate between advocates and critiques of game theory in IR; rather, it is to build an open-minded assessment that will prove useful to researchers, students and policy-makers alike.
