Do people always invest less in attack than defense? Possible qualifying factors

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

In many conflict situations, defense is easier to mobilize than attack. However, a number of factors, namely, the initial endowments available to each side, the stakes of the conflict, the respective costs of defense and attack, and the way that conflict is framed and perceived, may make attacking more attractive than defending.
