Terrorism and insurgency sway national and international politics and have profound repercussions for human welfare, the stability of governments, and economic growth. Ethan Bueno de Mesquita, AB’96, using leading social scientific research, argues that terrorists’ actions unfold according to the same strategic decision-making models that economists use to understand and predict competitive markets and interpersonal behavior. In this lecture, Bueno de Mesquita will describe what social scientists—who both create game theory models and perform empirical research—have learned about the causes of political violence and how it can be reduced.

Bueno de Mesquita is a professor and deputy dean in the Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, where his research focuses on terrorism, insurgency, rebellion, and other forms of asymmetric conflict.
