Summary What are the implications of re-emphasizing deterrence in defense policy? What is the appropriate balance of capabilities and political commitments to restore a credible defense posture while keeping the door open for constructive dialogue with Moscow and Beijing? In Western Europe, NATO's defense capabilities must be able to both deter adversaries and reassure allies. Canada, along with the United States, Germany and the UK, has become lead nation for one of the four battlegroups in the Baltics and Poland. Yet even with NATO's enhanced forward presence, it is not yet clear what deterrence will entail: is it a return to the Cold War or is deterrence in a more hybrid conflict environment fundamentally different? What is the respective importance of conventional forces, nuclear weapons and missile defense in upholding deterrence and reassurance? Those questions--and others--were addressed by panelists and presenters at KCIS 2018.
