During her fellowship year at CASBS, Antara Haldar will be working on a book manuscript on the institutional foundations of an altered paradigm of capitalism, and a series of accompanying papers using cutting-edge, hybrid social science methods. Her multiple award-winning research has covered themes of behavioral law and economics, law and norms and legal theory, and draws on a range of disciplines to understand the dynamics of cooperation and their interaction with both informal and formal institutions.
Haldar holds the inaugural position in empirical legal studies at the University of Cambridge, where she is a tenured associate professor at the faculty of law and teaches courses on law, economics and philosophy. She is also an affiliated lecturer at the faculty of philosophy, a senior research associate at the Judge Business School and a governing body fellow at Cambridge’s oldest college, Peterhouse. She is currently visiting faculty at Harvard University and the principal investigator on a major European Research Council-funded grant: LIMEN. She has previously held positions at Columbia University and the European University Institute. She writes extensively for some of the world’s leading publications (e.g., https://www.the-tls.co.uk/articles/intrinsic-goodness/) and is frequently invited to speak and teach all over the world.
