Andrew H. Kydd

Asst. Professor of Political Science, University of Wisconsin

Professor Kydd subtitles his exploration of the Syrian dilemma, “The Responsibility to Protect meets the Chemical Weapons Convention.”  He will bring his professional specialization on arms control, international conflict and military interventions to bear on these issues.  This year he was the author of a study, “The Road to Hell?: Third Party Intervention to Prevent Atrocities.”  Prof. Kydd has recently presented his views in a panel of UW professors and may invite one of his colleagues from that exchange to share the podium with him at MCFR.    

Andrew Kydd received his Ph.D in Political Science from the University of Chicago in 1996.  He taught at the University of California-Riverside and Harvard University before joining the Political Science Department at UW Madison in 2007. His interests center on game theory analysis of international security issues particularly WMD proliferation,  terrorism, and trust and conflict resolution.  His book, Trust and Mistrust Among Nations, published in 2005, won the 2006 Conflict Process Best Book Award.
