On October 15, 2018, IDA hosted a panel discussion on the challenge the United States faces in formulating a strategy that accounts for the potential for limited nuclear war. The discussion focused on Limited Nuclear War: The 21st Century Challenge for the United States, a July 2018 monograph published by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Center for Global Security Research. John Harvey, Jr., IDA’s Director of Strategy, Forces and Resources Division, opened the event, followed by a presentation from John K. Warden of IDA, the author of the monograph, and comments from former IDA researcher Brad Roberts, now Director of the Center for Global Security Research. William A. Chambers of IDA moderated the discussion.
