Event:

Rethinking deterrence and assurance. Western deterrence strategies: at an inflection point? (WP1545)

Image: Sergeant Tom Robinson RLC

This meeting asked:

  1. Are changes in the global security environment of a sufficiently fundamental kind to alter core premises of Western deterrence strategies?
  1. What implications follow for the cooperative efforts of the transatlantic community to strengthen and adapt deterrence to changing requirements?

We asked our participants what they thought should be the first priority for Western deterrence strategy and why.
