ExpertiseLucy Goodhart studies comparative and international political economy, analyzing the domestic politics of trade protection and coalition policy-making. Prior to coming to Brandeis, Goodhart was at Columbia University, where she taught European Union politics and attitudes to the welfare state, as well as statistics for political scientists. Her research has appeared in International Studies Quarterly, the Quarterly Journal of Political Science and the Review of International Political Economy.
ProfileLucy Goodhart has a strong interest in the political ramifications of the global economy. Her current analyzes the variation in voting and preferences across “Red” and “Blue” states within the US seeking to explain why poorer states are more likely to vote for Republican presidential candidates. Goodhart relates this variation to the pressure on earnings for households who are reliant on "middle-skill" occupations and shows how this has changed attitudes to government spending and taxation.
