Eleanor Fox Open Lecture

23 July 2015

Exclusionary Practices -  Is marginalisation easier than the law "thinks" it is?

A critical consideration of South Africa’s jurisprudence and BEE imperatives in light of recent international debates.

Eleanor Fox is the Walter J. Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation at New York University School of Law. She is an expert in antitrust and competition policy, and teaches, writes, and advises on competition policy in nations around the world and in international organizations. She has a special interest in developing countries, poverty, and inequality, and explores how opening markets and attacking privilege, corruption, and cronyism can alleviate marginalization and open paths to economic opportunity and inclusive development. Fox received her law degree from NYU School of Law in 1961; she received an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Paris-Dauphine in 2009. She was awarded an inaugural Lifetime Achievement award in 2011 by the Global Competition Review for “substantial, lasting, and transformational impact on competition policy and practice.” She received the inaugural award for outstanding contributions to the competition law community in 2015 by ASCOLA, the world network of academic law and economic competition experts. Fox is writing a book on competition and markets in sub-Saharan Africa.
