The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) will host the conference along with the Deterrence and Assurance Academic Alliance (DAAA), and King’s College London. It will also be convened by the Defence Academy’s Centre for Defence Educational Research (CDERA), further details of the event will be available to parties who register to attend.

Nicholas Taylor from DSTL said: “I very much hope many people will able to join us for what will be an engaging and interactive conference, bringing together those at the cutting-edge of deterrence theory and practice.”

Attendees and delegates will explore how deterrence has been affected by the 21st century, particularly how to apply it across multiple groups such as different states. It will also explore communication, deterrence and alliance cohesion, escalation, and simplifying processes in a more interconnected and complicated world.
