Who is Robert Putnam?

Robert David Putnam is a political scientist and Malkin Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government. He is also currently serving as Distinguished Visiting Professor at Aarhus University in Denmark, and was formerly a visiting professor and director of the Manchester Graduate Summer Programme in Social Change, University of Manchester. Putnam developed the influential two-level game theory that assumes international agreements will only be successfully brokered if they also result in domestic benefits.
