Balancing Forward Posture and Dynamic Force Employment: Developing a New Global Force Management Model

Grant Year: 2021


Becca Wasser, Stacie Pettyjohn, and E. D. McGrady will identify how the United States could best manage its military forces to deter or defeat Chinese or Russian aggression. They will conduct a literature review on force management concepts, interview policymakers involved in recent debates over how to posture U.S. forces, organize a pair of war games that test competing force management models, and convene a workshop in which to refine their findings. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
