Rethinking Strategic Doctrine in the Indo-Pak Context
Discussants: Arun Sahgal and Manpreet Sethi
- It is difficult to make a sharp distinction between compellence and deterrence as the former is subsumed in the latter.
- India’s doctrine is not an offensive one, but is reactive and therefore lends itself to deterrence as against compellence.
- Better integration and jointness among the services is required to achieve war aims in future wars.
