Vellah Kedogo Kigwiru

Senior Associate

Vellah Kedogo Kigwiru, an advocate of the High Court of Kenya, focuses on providing both legal and policy advice on topics that seek to understand governance and the actual implementation of laws, rules and principles by national and regional level institutions in the global south and in particular Africa, and how they interact with global governance. In doing so, through theoretical and methodological approaches, in addition to historical trajectories, she explores why there exist great disparities between the goal of establishing these institutions and the actual implementation with the aim of addressing the challenges that these regimes face.
Her areas of expertise focus on: competition law and policy; legal technology and innovation; international economic law; trade law; regional integration; human rights; and legal research and writing.
Kigwiru has recently published a journal article on the cooperation of competition policy under the African Continental Free Trade Area and she is conducting a PhD research on ‘Regional Regulation of Market Competition in Africa’ using the COMESA competition regime as a case study in a comparative analysis with the European Union.
