  • China-Latin America Military Engagement: Good Will, Good Business, and Strategic Position

    August 25, 2011

    Authored by Dr. R Evan Ellis.
    This monograph examines Chinese military engagement with Latin America, finding that the level of such activity is higher than is generally recognized, and has expanded in important ways, with high-level trips by Latin American defense and security personnel, officer exchange programs, growing arms sales, military-relevant space, aviation, and telecommunications collaboration, and a small but important physical presence in the region.

  • U.S. National Security Implications of Chinese Involvement in Latin America

    June 01, 2005

    Authored by Dr. R Evan Ellis.
    The underlying demographic and economic trends driving China's engagement with Latin America are significant and enduring—indicating that China's increased presence in the Western Hemisphere is likely to both endure and expand. This paper explores these trends, their manifestations, and some of the dynamics through which they may impact the national security of the United States.
