Current Research

Chee Meng works on quantitative topics related to national identity and culture as well as the impact of Chinese softpower on different regions across the globe. He has an avid interest in employing various statistical techniques, but is especially interested in the theoretical underpinnings of multilevel models and its application to the social sciences in general. At present, he is actively working on three main projects.

1. Using survey data, he uses multilevel modeling to examine the manner in which the Confucius Institutes from China influence trust of non-Chinese denizen towards national governments. Regions/continents investigated include East Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, the Middle East, Europe, the North America, South America as well as Africa.

2. Using survey data, he examines the manner in which Confucius Institutes, infrastructure investment and Panda Diplomacy from China has any positive impacts on non-Chinese perception towards the Asian giant. Regions examined include East Asia, Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America. We use multilevel modeling as our primary vehicle of investigation since we utilize survey data.

3. Alongside his coauthors he is compiling comprehensive datasets on Confucius Institutes and Pandas sent by China as loans to foreign nations.
