Eunice Goes joined the School of Communications, Arts and Social Sciences at Richmond University in 2008. She holds a DPhil in Politics from the London School of Economics and Political Science (2002), a M.A. in Politics from the University of Warwick (1997) and a B.A. in International Relations from Lusíada University (Lisbon, Portugal, 1994). Her areas of expertise are British party politics, British political thought and Britain’s relationship with Europe. She is also very interested in exploring the role of ideas in politics. Her latest research project is the monograph "The Labour Party Under Ed Miliband: Trying But Failing to Renew Social Democracy" (2016). This book examines the Labour Party’s response to the 2008 global financial crisis and identifies the factors that explain Ed Miliband’s failure in developing a social democratic programme.
