FMSO: Military DIME (M-DIME) Research Project: Tracking Chinese military influence in foreign states

What instruments does China use to attempt to gain military influence abroad? These reports use FMSO’s M-DIME Research Project framework to assess the extent to which China has leveraged twelve tools of national power between 2013 and 2023 to gain military influence abroad. In doing so, they assess China’s current overall military influence abroad, as well as its projected military influence. They also delineate which tools of national power China has most prominently used.
