The goal for the Deterrence and Assurance Academic Alliance 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.
Efforts include creating venues for academic communication and collaboration in the form of a website, an annual workshop, speaking engagements, a deterrence focused journal, and current and future research.
