Defense and Deterrence in the Gray Zone, with Elisabeth Braw

By Andrea Kendall-Taylor, Jim Townsend and Elisabeth Braw

How should the U.S. and Europe endeavor to deter and defend themselves against aggression in the gray zone between peace and war? Elizabeth Braw joins Andrea Kendall-Taylor and Jim Townsend to discuss the path towards creating greater transatlantic resilience to gray zone threats.

Elisabeth Braw is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where she focuses on defense against emerging national security challenges, such as hybrid and gray zone threats. Concurrently, she is a columnist with Foreign Policy, where she writes on national security and the globalized economy, and a member of the National Preparedness Commission (UK).
