National Defense University - Seminar: The Impact of the Changing Nature of Deterrence on Space
In cooperation with the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Force Transformation and Resources, we are delighted to announce the next seminar in NDU’s Transforming National Security series, entitled, “The Impact of the Changing Nature of Deterrence on Space.” This event will be held on April 13th and 14th in Marshall Hall, Room 155, National Defense University, Fort Lesley J. McNair, Washington, DC.
The seminar begins with the assumption that the U.S. and its allies are dependent on space to conduct current and future operations. Participants will discuss the risks those dependencies create for U.S. national security and explore policy options for protecting the commanding heights of space.
The main purpose of our event will be to examine three fundamental questions of U.S. space strategy:
o What constitutes a hostile act in space that we need to deter? And who act are likely actors?
o What should be the appropriate response options for the U.S. should deterrence fail?
o If a single threshold cannot be our line in the sand, is tailored deterrence with multiple thresholds possible?
Participants will be drawn into the complexity of the problem and invited to explore novel solutions to this security challenge. Please consider joining NDU's line up of distinguished guest speakers as they address these key issues, with an eye towards the next Quadrennial Defense Review.
