Glasgow Competition Talk by Dina Waked – Competition Law in the Global South

By 30 November 2023December 7th, 2023No Comments

On 30 November we are delighted to host Dina Waked, professor at Sciences Po Law School. Her in-person talk will take place in the Advanced Research Centre, room 237B.

Dina holds an S.J.D. (Doctor of Judicial Science) and an LL.M. from Harvard Law School, an LL.B. from Cairo University Law School, and a BA in Economics from the American University in Cairo. Her doctoral thesis received the Harvard Law School 2012 John M. Olin Law & Economics Prize.

Before joining the Law School at Sciences Po in 2013, she was teaching at the college of Sciences Po in Paris and Menton, SKEMA Business School – ESC Lille and the American University in Cairo.

She teaches courses on Global Antitrust Law, Comparative Competition Law and Economic Development, Law and Economics, Regulation, International Business Law, and Law in the Middle East.

Her research and publications explore issues linked to competition, development, critical law and economics, and economic growth and distribution in the Global South. Specifically, her work focuses on the intersection between antitrust enforcement and economic development. Her work utilizes econometric tools to evaluate the effectiveness of competition policy and its relationship with growth theory in the Global South. She also works on the history of law and economics to outline the dialectic relationship between these disciplines through the 19th century onwards.

She has advised a number of governments and international organizations on competition law compliance and the assessment of competition law reforms.
