Eleanor Fox is a prominent antitrust and comparative competition law scholar. Her recent work includes articles on markets, globalization, developing countries and antitrust; the intersection of trade and competition; and the disjuncture between national law and global markets, and the role of networks in harmonization, convergence and bridging differences. Professor Fox critiques the transplant to developing countries of Western antitrust law, especially antitrust law that embeds the premises of the Washington consensus; and argues for law adapted to efficient inclusive development.
Professor Fox served as a member of the International Competition Policy Advisory Committee to the Attorney General and Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust under President Clinton. She served as a member of the National Commission for the Review of Antitrust Laws and Procedures under President Carter.
