By Other Means: A Campaign Plan for the Gray Zone

Grant Year: 2018

Kathleen Hicks will develop a playbook for gray-zone conflicts in which powers like China and Russia pursue their objectives with coercive means short of conventional war. She will commission research to identify the potential repertoire of U.S. gray-zone instruments and to develop a concept for their integrated employment. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a series of policy briefings.
