The Global Militarization Index (GMI) of BICC (Bonn International Center for Conversion) presents the militarization of a country and thus shows developments and processes in resource allocation of a given country. It can be used as a tool for assessing the relationship between military to non--military resources and, additionally, can be used to evaluate the development orientation of countries as described in more detail in the following.
Building on the new available data of the GMI, general as well as regional trends and developments can be analyzed.
