Kyle Haynes

Assistant Professor
Political Science/BRNG 

Dr. Kyle Haynes joins the College of Liberal Arts as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science. He received his BA in Political Science and History from the University of Delaware, and his MA and PhD in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia. He comes to Purdue from Webster University in St. Louis, where he was previously employed as an Assistant Professor in the Department of History, Politics, and International Relations.

Dr. Haynes’ research focuses on international security, interstate bargaining, and U.S. foreign policy. One strand of this work examines how states communicate or “signal” their intentions during global power shifts. This research applies to contemporary policy debates on retrenchment or “restraint” in U.S. foreign policy and managing the ongoing rise of China. A second strand of Dr. Haynes’ research explores the ways in which domestic politics impact a state’s conflict behavior. This work examines how factors like presidential term limits, electoral margins of victory, or domestic protests can encourage or impede the use of force abroad. He has published his research in International Studies Quarterly, The Journal of Conflict Resolution, International Security, Conflict Management and Peace Science, and PS: Political Science and Politics.
