Abstract:

PIs Stephen Biddle George Washington University and Eli Berman UCSD supplemented existing Deterrence with Proxies DwP research with three book chapters and a research article. These additional activities funded by this grant analyze security force assistance as an example of capacity building, a recent theoretical extension to the underlying DwP model. In the course of their research they discovered that an alternative to an agency model of working through proxies is a capacity building approach, in which support and punishment are augmented by assistance that enhances the ability of the proxy to suppress the problem.
