Professor Musgrave on Tripwires & Public Opinion

Paul Musgrave, Professor of Political Science, discussed his recent research on “tripwire forces” on the Power Problems podcast. Musgrave says a tripwire can refer to “a small number of forces, normally US forces, deployed somewhere in what could be a crisis situation," for "greater commitment by the country that placed those forces there.” (Foreign Policy Analysis, Volume 19, Issue 4, October 2023)
