Game Theory in International Relations

Welcome to a two-part interview featuring DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellow Dmitri Blueschke, who leverages game theoretical models to understand state interactions in the confluence of economic and political interests. How does game theory modeling work? And what can it show us about U.S. tariff policies? Watch now to learn more!

Game Theory in IR: How Can We Model State Actors?

In this episode of "Four Minute Foreign Policy," FPI SAIS is pleased to introduce DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellow Dmitri Blueschke. In this first of two segments, join us in learning how Dr. Blueschke applies game theoretic models to understand international trade policy dynamics - including the United States's present approaches to trade with China and Europe.

How does game theory allow us to model cooperative and non-cooperative interactions? What are the key challenges to modeling state behavior, and how can we manage them? What does game theory tell us about the varieties of behavior, and what insight does it provide on real-world outcomes?

Game Theory in IR: Modeling U.S. Tariffs

In the second segment of his FPI SAIS "Four Minute Foreign Policy" interview, DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellow Dmitri Blueschke explores his game theoretic model of the Trump administration's tariffs on China.

What are the model's implications for short-term and long-term goals? How might we assess variations considering the EU and intermediate versus final goods? What do the findings suggest for addressing discontent?
