Landscape and Dynamics of a Multi-Polar Strategic BMD World
Center on Contemporary Conflict
MetadataShow full item record
Until recently, the United States has been the only state successfully pursuing ballistic missile defense (BMD) capabilities. However, Russia, China, and India have made strides toward their own strategic BMD systems, opening up a range of understudied questions. This research will improve scholarly and public understanding of the implications of a multi-polar strategic ballistic missile defense world. The project will investigate the strategic landscape and dynamics of a multipolar strategic ballistic missile defense world in order to understand the potential impact of such a world on offense-defense dynamics, countermeasures, regional stability, cross-domain deterrence, alliance planning, and global arms control efforts.
