Research Expertise, Publications & Grants
Daniel's research has addressed the relationship between environmental unsustainability and the state’s institutions, objectives and strategies. He has researched the ‘Green State’ concept since 2016, with articles in New Political Economy and Renewal critiquing its inherent contradictions and institutional design whilst highlighting the need for engagement with cutting-edge bodies of scholarship on fiscal and monetary governance.
Prior to this, his doctoral research explored the systemic paradoxes of welfare state sustainability and environmental sustainability if the latter entailed the end of economic growth. It interrogated the question of whether post-growth economics implicitly entailed further austerity and its consequences for the democratic legitimacy of the post-growth project. This research resulted in articles in British Politics and New Political Economy in addition to the thesis.
In addition, he has analysed the evolving varieties of capitalism (with Colin Hay) and conducted research (alongside colleagues from the New Economics Foundation and Matthew Wood) on the institutional changes taking place to British economic governance as a result of the Northern Powerhouse agenda, with implications for both economic performance and environmental targets. These empirical projects collectively produced one book, two articles, one book chapter, a report for the New Economics Foundation, and two reports for Policy Network and the Foundation of European Progressive Studies.
