New Approaches to Deter the People’s Republic of China’s Aggression

Grant Year: 2022


Timothy Walton and Bryan Clark will lead an effort to analyze China’s decision-making and command-and-control processes and assess a variety of U.S. deterrence strategies. They will analyze the People’s Liberation Army’s writings, conduct interviews, and hold a workshop to identify trends and vulnerabilities in Chinese decision-making processes and then use those insights to identify options for optimizing U.S. force posture in the Indo-Pacific region. The project’s findings will be published in a series of reports.
