Research interests

Dr Bailey’s research addresses the relationships between the entrenched operations of the economy, the natural world, and political institutions. In particular he examines how the state’s various institutions, objectives and strategies have ‘locked in’ economic patterns of ecological degradation (including GHG emissions, deforestation and plastic pollution), and the prospects of environmental sustainability being accomplished by a ‘Green State’.  

He has published in top-ranking academic journals (including New Political Economy, Competition and Change, Local Government Studies and British Politics) as well as authoring articles for Renewal and co-authoring think tank reports for the New Economics Foundation, IPPR and FEPS.
