Implementing Integrated Deterrence

6 December 2022



The concept of Integrated Deterrence is featured in the just-released, unclassified version of the National Defense Strategy. Now in its 16th year, the Naval Institute’s Defense Forum Washington assembled civilian leaders, senior military, and members of Congress, to hear their views on what Integrated Deterrence is and how it should be implemented. Defense Forum Washington took place on 6 December 2022 at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C.
