The Adoption and Adaptation of Deterrence Theories in India

This seminar examines, through analysis of the writings of prominent security intellectuals, how the doctrine of deterrence came to dominate thinking about nuclear weapons over the last four decades. It will lay out the domestic conditions and the external factors that combined to produce this outcome. It will also discuss the threat posed to regional and global stability by the routine and unexamined invocation of deterrence in India today. It will end with policy implications. The presentation will use qualitative and quantitative content analysis of op-eds on the nuclear issue published in English-language national newspapers in India, from 1970 to 2010.

It is a territory that a growing number of nations have laid claim upon, making it increasingly difficult to balance the interests of those already in space with those looking to move into the high frontier. We’ll talk about space security.
