    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Daniel Edmiston joined the Department of Political Science and Public Law in 2023. He is currently principal investigator of the WHOCOUNTS project funded by the European Research Council and affiliated with the Institute of Government and Public Policies.

    Overall, Daniel’s programme of research is animated by the following questions: what is the relationship between social policy, welfare politics and inequality? And considering this relationship, how should welfare (state) interventions be configured to effectively tackle poverty and disadvantage? To explore these questions, he has undertaken national and comparative research drawing on mixed methods approaches to critically examine the impact of state-citizen dynamics on human welfare across high-income countries.

    Prior to joining UAB, Daniel has previously worked for the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit, London School of Economics, University of Oxford and University of Leeds.
