Erica S. Downs Biography

Erica S. Downs is a fellow in the John L. Thornton China Center.

She holds a Ph.D. and an M.A. from Princeton University and a B.S. from Georgetown University.

Her current research focuses on a complex of issues related to the international expansion of Chinese firms, especially in the energy, mining and construction sectors. The issues include the relationship between Chinese state-owned companies and the party-state, the roles played by China Development Bank and the Export-Import Bank of China, the extent to which cross-border deals are driven by the strategic interests of the Chinese party-state versus the commercial objectives of Chinese companies, and the impact of the global activities of Chinese firms on China’s foreign policy.
