- The workshop will bring together experts from a variety of disciplinary perspectives to discuss trust and deception in international politics. How do trust and deception affect each other? Why, when, and how do leaders and policy-makers attempt to deceive each other and their publics? What are the available tools to detect deception? Can trust be built in an environment in which deception is perceived to be the norm? Scholars will convene to tackle the theory and application of their current research.

- Dr Wright applies two core new insights from the modern brain sciences. First, the neural phenomenon of "prediction error" that provides a tool to increase or decrease the impact of our actions. Second, specific social motivations that can limit deterrence and cause escalation and de-escalation. He discusses historical and contemporary cases, U.S. and Chinese doctrine, a China-U.S. escalation scenario and policy recommendations.
