U.S. ballistic missile defenses, reoriented under the Obama Administration largely to emphasize regional deployments in collaboration with allies and partners, offer an evolving tool for preserving and strengthening U.S. extended deterrence commitments. Kelleher will lead a series of expert seminars focused on those geographic areas now seen as most relevant to U.S. strategic interests (East Asia and the Middle East) to examine the impact these missile defense plans have on the nature and force requirements for general and extended deterrence and, in particular, the continued protection promised since the 1950s under the United States’ nuclear umbrella. The project will also build on the lessons learned from the European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA).
