Sean McDaniel

Lecturer in British Politics

Sean’s expertise sits at the intersection of Comparative Political Economy and Party Politics and has been primarily concerned with understanding how British and European models of economic growth and progressive politics are shaped by both ongoing processes of post-crisis capitalist adjustment.His current research agenda focuses on the UK Labour Party and the politics of just transition in the UK. A key aspect of this work is understanding the relationship between the tasks of justly decarbonising the UK economy and ensuring energy security in the context of a fragmenting global order.Sean’s research has been published in international peer reviewed journals including The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Economic and Industrial Democracy, Geoforum, New Political Economy, Socio-Economic Review and the Journal of European Public Policy. His book, Divided They Fell: Crisis and The Collapse of Europe’s Centre-Left, was published in 2023 by Agenda Publishing Ltd.
