Kimberly Marten (Professor of Political Science, Barnard) is the author of “Putin’s Rationality and Escalation in Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine,” a policy memo for PONARS-Eurasia. Marten writes about why Putin is unlikely to escalate his invasion either on to NATO territory or up to use of nuclear weapons, and why we need to focus on miscalculation and inadvertent escalation instead.
