In this essay, the author examines the viability of deterrence strategies for non-nuclear states. He highlights the importance of deterrence strategies, followed by an examination of the various theories of deterrence such as classical deterrence theory and perfect deterrence theory. The author also notes the limitations of both theories in that both rely on an assumption of rationality. He then proceeds to discuss credibility and communication as the key factors to deterrence as well as the limitations of communication and conventional deterrence. This is then followed by a discussion on nuclear deterrence. The author then uses Singapore as a case study, illustrating the principles discussed after which, he concludes by stating that conventional deterrence is a viable strategy for both nuclear and non-nuclear states.
