Philippe Le Corre is a nonresident senior fellow in the Europe and Asia Programs at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He specializes in China’s global rise, China’s relations with Europe and Eurasia, competition in the Asia-Pacific region, and Chinese foreign direct investments. Le Corre is also a senior fellow with the Harvard Kennedy School’s Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government, an affiliate with the Program on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship at Harvard's Belfer Center and an associate in research with Harvard’s Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies. From 2014 to 2017, he was a visiting fellow in the Foreign Policy Program at the Brookings Institution.

His career spans government, academia, media, and business. He has served as a special assistant for international affairs to the French defense minister, and as a senior policy adviser on Asia within the French Ministry of Defense’s directorate for international relations and strategy. In the private sector, Le Corre worked as a partner with Publicis Consultants in Paris and Shanghai, where he ran a team of advisers to the Shanghai World Expo 2010 Organizing Committee. He previously worked in Asia as a foreign correspondent for nine years, and has published extensively on the region in Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, South China Morning Post, Straits Times, Politico, National Interest, Le Monde, Les Echos, Nikkei Asian Review, Foreign Policy, and Foreign Affairs, among others. In 2018, he testified in the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs on the topic of Chinese investment and influence in Europe.

He is the author of several books including China’s Offensive in Europe (Brookings Institution Press, 2016), Quand la Chine va au marché (Maxima, 1999) and Après Hong Kong (Autrement, 1997). He has published various papers on China including “China’s Rise: What About a Transatlantic Dialog?” (Asia-Europe Journal, April 2017, co-authored with Jonathan Pollack) and “China Abroad: The Long March to Europe” (China Economic Quarterly, June 2016). His latest paper, “China’s Rise as Geoeconomic Influencer: Four European Case Studies”, is published by Carnegie.

Le Corre received his MSc in Asian studies from the National Institute for Oriental Languages and Civilizations in Paris and his MA in political science from the Sorbonne. He was a fellow at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard for which he was awarded a Sachs Scholarship for 2003-2004.
