Deterring and Influencing Terrorism and WMD
21 September 2021 - 8 h 00 min - 17 h 00 min
Middlebury Institute of International
Studies at Monterey
This seminar examines deterrence and other strategies for responding to security threats, with a focus on how those strategies might be adapted to deal with the dangers posed by terrorism and WMD proliferation. The course will survey existing research on deterrence and alternative policy tools such as coercive diplomacy, assurance, and positive incentives. It will introduce some of the latest thinking about whether these tools are useful for influencing actors away from support for terrorism or WMD acquisition or use.
