Scoping Study and Model Development for South Asian Stability Workshop 3.0 [PASCC Research in Progress]   [open pdf - 365KB]

"Objective: This research project will develop a new model and design a new scenario for conducting a third iteration of the South Asian Stability Workshop. This project will seek new game mechanisms that will allow for greater fidelity in depicting a nuclear-tinged future crisis in South Asia with the potential to draw in China and the United States. This project builds upon the foundations and feedback from previous TTXs [Tabletop Exercise] conducted by the principle investigator. These previous exercises revealed several disconnects in each country's strategic rationale; limitations on their understandings of the intentions and capabilities of the other country; their assumptions about escalation control; and, most importantly, their assumptions and visualizations of the roles of international powers in South Asian crises. This crisis simulation exercise model will seek to incorporate best practices for conducting four-team war games and will incorporate regional force trajectories over the next ten years, as well as projected geopolitical trends."
