Abstract:

On October 4-5, 2009, the Naval Postgraduate Schools Center for Contemporary Conflict CCC, in conjunction with the Gulf Research Center GRC, convened in Dubai, UAE, to discuss the role of extended deterrence and security assurances in the regional security environment. The Gulf States, like others in the Middle East and beyond, have growing concerns over Irans nuclear ambitions and regional objectives, as well the Wests commitment to providing security assurances against Iranian aggression. The conversation touched on the history and application of extended deterrence and security guarantees in the region, and elaborated on the perceptions among Gulf nations of their current security environment.
