New Approaches to Preventing Regional Conflict:
A PASCC Workshop
On September 25, 2015, PASCC hosted its semi-annual workshop to present PASCC research on new approaches to preventing regional conflict. This half-day event, held at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC, highlighted PASCC-sponsored research on strategic stability in East and South Asia and emerging security challenges in the Middle East. Experts briefed their findings from ongoing and recently completed research projects and international workshops, and engaged in a lively discussion about regional issues related to strategic stability and nuclear weapons.

The Project on Advanced Systems and Concepts for Countering WMD (PASCC) supports research activities that benefit the public through analysis and engagement to reduce and counter the threats posed by WMD/WME. PASCC seeks to:
- Cultivate national and international research community partnerships across domains
- Bring scientific, technical, and social science faculty/experts together
- Look ahead to help understand and anticipate WMD/WME capabilities and threats
We encourage you to take a look at our Research in Progress (RIP) summaries for our new and ongoing projects. These RIP sheets describe the strategic relevance and proposed approach to each project, and are published when a project receives funding; they do not include project findings or conclusions.
