Cyber Strategy

The Evolving Character of Power and Coercion

Brandon Valeriano, Benjamin Jensen, and Ryan C. Maness

  • Argues that cyber coercion complements rather than replaces traditional instruments of statecraft and power
  • Offers an innovative, empirically-grounded theory that suggests cyber strategies function more as political warfare and covert action than decisive instruments of war
  • Challenges the popular discourse that cyber conflict is a useful and novel way to achieve coercive effects in international affairs
