Misremembrance of Things Past: Cooperation Between the US and Russia Despite Conflicting Narratives. Yoshiko Herrera and Andrew Kydd, Professors of Political Science at the UW-Madison, will examine alternative “blame-free” strategies that can sustain cooperation in the absence of shared beliefs about guilt for past transgressions, using results from a computer tournament of several strategies and a case study of U.S.-Russian relations to show how, if there are divergent perceptions, "temporary mutual punishment" is the the strategy that tends to prevail, if cooperation is possible at all.
