This research project will develop a new model and design a new scenario for conducting a third iteration of the South Asian Stability Workshop. This project will seek new game mechanisms that will allow for greater fidelity in depicting a nuclear-tinged future crisis in South Asia with the potential to draw in China and the United States. This project builds upon the foundations and feedback from previous TTXs conducted by the principle investigator. These previous exercises revealed several disconnects in each country’s strategic rationale; limitations on their understandings of the intentions and capabilities of the other country; their assumptions about escalation control; and, most importantly, their assumptions and visualizations of the roles of international powers in South Asian crises. This crisis simulation exercise model will seek to incorporate best practices for conducting four-team war games and will incorporate regional force trajectories over the next ten years, as well as projected geopolitical trends.
