The changing character of conflict invites “asymmetrical types of strategies”, and this may offset military inferiority, said Dr Michael Raska from the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.
Singapore’s deterrence and defence capabilities are “second to none” in the region. But countries with inferior military might could weaken Singapore by exploiting issues that cause tensions among groups, said Assistant Professor Michael Raska from Nanyang Technological University on Wednesday (Mar 14).
Speaking at the first public hearing of the Select Committee on Deliberate Online Falsehoods, Dr Raska, who is from the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, added that cyber-enabled information conflicts essentially challenge concepts of deterrence.
The changing character of conflict invites “asymmetrical types of strategies” that may offset anyone’s military inferiority and achieve similar political outcomes, he said.
