The question motivating this project is, “How can nuclear deterrence be maintained in the midst of high-intensity conventional operations?” Building on their prior work, Daryl Press of Dartmouth College and Keir Lieber of Georgetown University will develop a new analytic framework to help identify the key escalatory triggers in relevant conflicts and the ways those triggers might be avoided without jeopardizing vital national security interests.
