Posted May 10 2012

Michael Doyle, the Harold Brown Professor of International Affairs, Law, and Political Science, and Robert Jervis, Adlai E. Stevenson Professor of International Affairs, were among seven new Fellows inducted into the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences on May 10.

“Our new Fellows represent the very best of scholarship in political and behavioral science,” said Doug Massey, a Princeton professor of sociology who is president of the Academy. “Throughout their careers, they have each made essential contributions to our understanding of society, and demonstrated how great research can benefit policymaking and the common good.”

Michael Doyle, a specialist in international relations theory, international security, and international organizations, served as assistant secretary-general and special adviser to United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan from 2001 to 2003. His recent publications include Liberal Peace (Routledge, 2011).

Robert Jervis specializes in international politics in general and security policy, decision making, and theories of conflict and cooperation in particular. He is the author of several books, including Why Intelligence Fails: Lessons from the Iranian Revolution and the Iraq War, published by Cornell University Press in April 2010.
