2018 Deterrence and Assurance Academic Alliance Hosted at Nebraska Law Releases Call for Abstracts

18 Oct 2017    

The 2018 Deterrence and Assurance Academic Alliance (DAAA) conference will be held at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, proudly hosted and sponsored by the Department of Political Science and the College of Law's Space, Cyber, and Telecommunication's Law Program. On Wednesday October 18th conference leadership released the call for abstracts. 

The goal for the DAAA is to strengthen and regularize collaborative relationships and interactions between defense and academic institutions to stimulate new thinking and develop future generations of deterrence practitioners.

This year the theme of the conference is “Thinking Outside the Silo: Creative Problem Solving in Deterrence and Assurance.” Everything you remember about traditional deterrence theory? Challenge it. This workshop will challenge conventional wisdom to address the changing landscape of security threats and war fighting domains. Submissions should think outside the box and use new and innovative methodologies to reassess old problems and address new ones in deterring adversaries and assuring allies.

Abstracts should be 500 to 1,000 words and detail the precise topic, thesis, and methodology to be used in your analysis.

A list of suggested topics is available at www.stratcom.mil/Academic-Alliance/Research-Topics
