Twenty eight-year-old Antara Haldar has breached tradition to become the first non-European lecturer of law at the University of Cambridge. She is also among the youngest, and the only Indian, to get the tenured position in the top-ranking law faculty.
In her website, Haldar said, “My research and teaching span law and development, law and economics and legal theory – and is defined by an attempt to bridge the gap between theory and empirics that characterises much of the development literature. My writing has covered a wide variety of topics including microfinance and other credit markets, land titling and property rights, formal and informal law and evolutionary institutional dynamics.”
She was recently on a whirlwind trip to India where she met policymakers, bankers and industry bigwigs. The economics major from St Stephens (Delhi) is all set to study the Gujarat development model and use textiles as a case study.
