With the covid-19 pandemic, attention in capitals has understandably shifted from deterrence to containing the coronavirus and dealing with its devastating impact. Border closures delayed the delivery of essential goods and medical supplies, highlighting the vital role that mobility plays in a crisis. These challenges for civilian leaders and the role of “crisis mobility” overlap significantly with the framework and capabilities also needed for “military mobility.”

Defense budgets are now under pressure as governments struggle to find resources to salvage and rebuild their economies and protect their citizens. Yet the threats we face today from potential adversaries will still be there after this current pandemic has passed — and so will the need for deterrence. Join CEPA for a discussion to consider how the defense community can help political leaders deal with today's coronavirus-related challenges while ensuring effective deterrence in the future.
