Are some regional nuclear powers better able to deter conflict initiation and escalation than others? This seminar will identify the various types of nuclear postures that regional states have selected and test whether some are better able to deter conflict. It will present results from both a large-n analysis as well as some key India-Pakistan crises cases. Understanding whether some regional nuclear postures are better able to deter conflict—and why states select the postures they do—is critical as an increasing number of regional states march toward nuclear weapons capabilities.
