Seminar - Open to the Public

Imagining the Unimaginable: War, Weapons, and Procurement Politics

Thu., Oct. 22, 2020 | 12:15pm - 2:00pm


Speaker: Sanne Verschuren, Research Fellow, International Security Program

Rather than assuming convergence in countries' military capabilities, this seminar examines why and how countries decide to develop different weapon capabilities within similar domains of warfare. To answer these questions, this seminar will explore the role of ideas and institutional bargaining in shaping decisions about military technology. This talk will subsequently apply the theory to the development of missile defense in the post–Cold War period.
