Tailoring Deterrence, Extended Deterrence, and Missile Defense in a New Era

Grant Year: 2022


Keith Payne will lead an effort to explore how the United States should revisit its strategic deterrence capabilities in the new era of great power competition. He will undertake research and analysis on the evolving strategic force postures and polices of Russia, China, and the United States; conduct interviews and convene a study team with experts and officials of allies and partners; and identify dissonance between contemporary threat realities and U.S. deterrence capabilities and guidelines. The project’s findings will appear in a monograph and a series of articles and briefings.
