Maritime Insurgency: Recasting Gray-Zone Competition in the South China Sea

Grant Year: 2018

Patrick Cronin will lead an effort to develop an alternative strategic framework for thinking about possible U.S. responses to China’s challenge in the South China Sea. He will undertake field work and host a series of workshops to explore whether insights from past insurgency and counterinsurgency campaigns could be adapted to prevent China’s domination of the South China Sea. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a series of briefings.
