Abstract:

This special report was prepared as a step toward understanding and dealing with the various dimensions of deterrence as they apply in the current international environment of this decade. It is becoming increasingly clear that the entire subject of deterrence needs to be re-examined in the context of the changed realities of todays world. This study explores the theoretical underpinnings of this subject, including treatment of the different kinds of deterrence, and what we know, think we know, and dont know about deterrence. The study is intended to assist Global 93 players in identifying and developing deterrence strategies options that may be appropriate for regional crisis situations of this decade.
